Ribafreixo Wines is a wine project that belongs to the partners Mário Pinheiro and Nuno Bicó, consisting of the Herdade do Moinho Branco, with an already considerable size of 114 ha in Vidigueira, a region with a tremendous wine tradition. Our enologist, Paulo Laureano, is renowned for his “art of well-doing wine”, and is one of the major keystones with regard to our increasing success and affirmation.
Our mission is to continue to produce wines of excellence at competitive prices, insomuch that they may meet the requirements of the National and International market. In a world where Portuguese wines are renowned for their difference, our main ambition is to affirm and reinforce our positioning in the most varied and demanding foreign markets. A hard task which is combined with the presence in the domestic market, an essential point in our brand’s communication strategy.
In the ever-growing, competitive universe of winemaking, we believe we have strong differentiation factors, like our strategic investment in the Portuguese castes, some of them indigenous to the region of Vidigueira (Antão Vaz). These are wines that express the terroir of shale, the Portuguese castes and the specific microclimate of Vidigueira, a region that has the ideal characteristics for the production of highly aromatic white wines.
