The Region

Quinta da Ervamoira, located on the Douro superior on the left bank of the Douro River where it meets the Coa River, is Ramos Pinto’s experimental vineyard. Here, 240 acres of vines are planted vertically, a departure from the traditional horizontal rows stepping up the hilly slopes rising from the river. Vertical planting allows closer spacing of the vines, increasing the production by hectare and reducing vigour, with a resultant improvement in quality. Like much of the Douro’s steep slopes, the soil is schistose and very poor.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Adriano Ramos Pinto founded the house in 1880 and the excellent quality of the wines soon gained recognition on the export market. Adriano’s business foresight made him something of a pioneer in the Port market whereby he supported the promotion of his wines with a quality advertising campaign based on posters designed by some of the most famous artists of his time.

Today, as majority shareholders, the Louis Roederer family group perpetuates the policy of quality by way of substantial investment in advanced technology and viticultural methods combined with respect for tradition and service.

Among Port producers, Ramos Pinto has the largest holding of estate vineyards proportionate to wine produced. The Quintas are located in the delimited areas of Cima-Corgo for Quinta do Bom-Retiro and Quinta do Urtiga, and Douro Superior for Quinta da Ervamoira and Quinta dos Bons Ares. In 1976, RamosPinto began a detailed and ongoing research project to select the best grape varieties for the production of quality Port and table wines. Five varietals selected by Ramos Pinto were subsequently adopted by the Authorities for all new plantings in the region: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca,Tinta Roriz and Tinto Cao.
