About the winery
Ramos Pinto was founded in 1880 and, for several decades, its history has been marked by a balance between innovation and respect for tradition. The House is known for producing and selecting the best grapes, its knowledge of terroir and for pioneering the launch of New Douro wines all over the world. Today, Ramos Pinto retains its position as a traditional House producing top quality wines. In the quest for excellence, Ramos Pinto is independently run to this day, which enables the House to conduct continuous technical and technological research. The House owns four estates in the Douro: Quinta do Bom Retiro and Quinta da Urtiga, in the heart of the region, as well as Quinta dos Bons Ares and Quinta de Ervamoira in the Douro Superior. Committed to improving its bond with nature and the environment, Ramos Pinto is working towards this achievement by implementing organic farming and increasing biodiversity in the vineyard.

History & Geography
The House of Ramos Pinto currently has four estates in Douro – Quinta do Bom Retiro, Quinta da Urtiga, Quinta de Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares - in a total of 350 ha. Ramos Pinto soon adopted its own production policy, thus having the highest rate of self-sufficiency amongst Port wine shippers. José Antonio Rosas and João Nicolau de Almeida led the first technical study on the Douro grape varieties, culminating in the selection of the best and most well adapted red and white varieties, for the production of both Port and Douro wines. They studied and developed the method of vertical plantation in the Region – Ervamoira was the first Douro estate entirely with vertical planting and varietal separation. Ramos Pinto also conducted a study on irrigation in the Douro Superior region, enabling the rational irrigation of the vineyards, in this subregion of extreme climate. Casa Ramos Pinto was one of the first to produce and export Douro still wines.
