The Oddbins Take

In a move that must surely make her the envy of maligned media families like the Murdochs and the welly-wearing Windsors, Filipa Pato wisely set up on her own instead of joining her father's famous enterprise. As she says herself, she and her father are both very "strong, difficult" characters. And, in case anyone was wondering whether or not this headstrong move was a smart one, her wines, like this perfumed, supple and fresh red, are garnering praise from pundits worldwide. Good move, Filipa, good move!

Filipa Pato has a small space for her winery at the back of her father's (Luis Pato) winery where she has made wine since her first vintage in 2001. They are currently in the process of planning a new winery, which they hope to be ready soon. Filipa’s philosophy is “authentic wines without makeup”; by this she means no new oak, no oak chips and no concentrators or acid additions. She wants the terroir of the wine to show as clearly as possible.
