Wine and Soul was founded in 2001 by Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serôdio Borges, both winemakers and couple, who invested and acquired old vineyards and properties in the Pinhão Valley in Cima Corgo.
"Our aim is to create wines that express all the character of the traditional vineyards and grape varieties of the Douro Valley. Wines balanced between concentration, complexity and elegance".
They chose a 100-year-old vineyard in the Pinhão Valley (Vale de Mendiz). This south-facing plot is ideally situated to produce the powerful and intense red wine style imagined by Sandra and Jorge. Pintas was born.
A white wine followed shortly afterwards. The Guru grapes come from a vineyard over 50 years old located in the extreme north of the Douro and produce a spicy and full-bodied white wine.
Sandra and Jorge also took the family-owned Quinta da Manoella under their wing. In the wines they produce here, it is the extraordinary elegance that is particularly striking. Manoella also gives grapes for a very confidential Port production.
This Tawny is full of flavor and complexity. The nose offers fresh aromas of nuts, honey, figs and dried apricot. The palate is rich with creamy, smoky white chocolate, hazelnut and pear flavours. The finish is long and spicy.
