Luis Pato


Luis Pato is famous for his nonconformist and pioneering attitude, and was instrumental in putting the Bairrada region on the map.  He is a champion of the local red grape, Baga, and has used it, along with other extraordinary Portuguese grapes, to create world class, award-winning wines since the 1980s.

He is one of the most innovative and best known winemakers in Portugal and is also the Vice President of Wines of Portugal.
