O Produtor, tasting note published in May 10th 2022

Straw color, aromas of honey, and a hint of smoke. On the palate, it is super elegant with vibrant acidity and very indulgent. Ideal for drinking now or for storing for a few years.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

The viticultural year of 2020 was a hot and dry year that produced very promising wines, with freshness and intensity.

The harvest took place in September. The grapes were transported in 22kg crates to the winery. They spent 12 hours in a cold room, were destemmed, partially crushed, and gravity-fed to the granite lagar, where complete alcoholic fermentation occurred with indigenous yeast, undergoing foot treading. Subsequently, the wine was transferred to 225L casks, followed by malolactic fermentation. Aging took place in these same casks for 14 months. The wine was bottled in May 2022.

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.
