Pintas Character is made from the 30-year old fieldblend surrounding the Pintas vineyard, which consists of the indigenous varieties Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Touriga Nacional. The wine is fermented in traditional granite lagares and aged for 18 months in 50% new and 50% second-passage French oak barriques.
Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges are oenologists and married with each other. One fine day, they decided to make a wine together and they bought an old Port Wine warehouse, in Vale de Mendiz. Wine & Soul was born and so was Pintas, a garage wine whose name was inspired by their restless pointer. Pintas comes from a single 70 years old vineyard, whose ground features and grape varieties (more than 30) allow them to extract marked and defined terroir wines. With 2.5 ha of vineyard in 6 ha of ground, Jorge and Sandra set themselves a new challenge: to produce a high quality white wine, something they both consider to be very complex. Guru is the expression of this challenge.
