O Produtor, tasting note published in June 10th 2023

Light ruby color, it presents aromas of eucalyptus, blackcurrant, and mint. On the palate, it is very fresh and somewhat spicy. It has lively tannins and stands as a beautiful example of the Tinto Cão grape variety.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

The viticultural year 2020/2021 was characterized by some fluctuations in temperature and annual precipitation values relative to historical averages, considering a normal and dry year. With a long, cool, and rainy harvest (mostly from the second half of September). The musts are of good quality, fresher, aromatic, with good acidity, and slightly less alcoholic.

Harvest took place in September. Grapes were transported in 22kg crates to the winery. They spent 12 hours in a refrigerated chamber, were destemmed, partially crushed, and then gravity-fed to the granite lagar, where complete alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeast and foot treading occurred. After that, the wine was transferred to 225L casks, followed by malolactic fermentation. Aging took place in these same casks for 16 months. The wine was bottled in June 2023.

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.
