Wine & Soul belongs to Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serôdio Borges, both winemakers – a couple that in 2001 decided to make a wine together. Pintas is the result, made from a 80-year- old vineyard planted with more than 30 different indigenous grape varieties. In 2003 the first Pintas Vintage Port was also made and in 2004 the first Guru White wine was made from a 44-year-old vineyard with a blend of Viosinho, Códega, Rabigato and Gouveio. In 2009 by heritage Quinta da Manoella was added to Wine & Soul portfolio; this property was established in 1838 by Vieira de Sousa family, ancestors of Jorge Serôdio Borges; this estate belongs to the same family now for five generations. They say: Our goal is to create wines that express all the character of the traditional vineyards and varieties from Douro Valley. Balanced wines with concentration, complexity and elegance.
