Pessegueiro

The winemaking was done in wooden balseiros and mills. The wine was then aged for 12 months in French and Austrian oak vats. During the winemaking and ageing process, the wine was moved smoothly, by gravity, and without the use of pumps.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

The wines produced at Quinta do Pessegueiro seduce for their undeniably superior quality, the result of a complete and balanced project whose objective is to value the originality and properties of each small vineyard in the truest possible way. At the head of a group that became, after 50 years, the leader of children’s fashion, Roger Zannier is today also present in several wine regions of the world, such as the Douro region (Portugal) and Provence (France).

In his frequent visits to Portugal as part of his textile activities, Roger Zannier discovers Quinta do Pessegueiro, being literally seduced by the Douro property and region. In 1991, he acquires the land, immediately starting to plant vineyards. Thus was born his first and one of his most important investments in the wine sector.

The property expanded over the years and is now composed of three plots, all located in the Douro region.

As this region is one of the most unlikely where man has ever tried to plant vines, it took the foresight and modesty of a respectful captain of the land, such as João Nicolau de Almeida, to associate ancestral techniques with the most modern methods of oenology and viticulture.
