Adriano Ramos Pinto
Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto rapidly became noted, at the time, for its innovative and enterprising strategy. Associated with quality bottled wines, it began operating on the Brazilian market in the early 20th century and quickly became responsible for half of the wine exported to South America, whilst it was still conquering generations of loyal customers in Portugal and Europe. These were the natural results of a forward thinking strategy, based on the modernisation of selection, batching and ageing circuits, and the special care which Adriano Ramos Pinto devoted to the packaging and promotion of his wines. The Ramos Pinto wines have therefore become a reference of quality. A personal touch and autonomy are two of the key factors, which give its wines that unique and distinct characteristic and through these Casa Ramos Pinto has outlined the development of its work for the future. Casa Ramos Pinto has always understood that the quality of its wines begins in the earth of the Douro region and therefore took ownership of a number of estates, carefully selected in the Demarcated Region. It was the first step in a wine-producing career which has invested in a philosophy of self-supply, the purpose of which is to, in the short term, guarantee total production of the grapes used in port and still wines. The pursuit of excellence is evident in the effective quality of the wines it produces and the continuation of a pioneering tradition in the areas of research, which for decades has guided its production strategy.
