O Produtor, tasting note published in May 20th 2023

Presents a bright yellow color, the nose is fresh with lemony and floral notes. In the mouth, it is super balanced, with the wood imparting incredible richness and unctuousness. A very persistent and complete wine.

Quinta do Pessegueiro

The viticultural year of 2021/2022 was characterized by being a hot and dry year. Continuous drought and very high temperatures during maturation forced early harvests, which only slowed down with the drop in temperatures and the precipitation that occurred in early September. These conditions were beneficial for maturation, contributing to an increase in the quality of the wines.

The harvest took place in early September. The grapes were transported in 22kg crates to the winery. They spent 12 hours in a refrigerated chamber before being pressed in a vertical press. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts occurred for the entire batch in used 600L barrels. It underwent a 6-month aging process in wood on fine lees. The wine was bottled in May 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.
