Douro, Portugal

First winemaker of his lineage, the future of Pedro Coelho seemed nevertheless inevitable. Coming from a grandfather who worked with cork in its raw form, an oak-producing grandmother and a cork producing father, his fate indeed seemed drawn from birth. Assisted by Luis Seabra, former winemaker of Niepoort and winemaker of the year according to the magazine Revista Wine, Pedro aimed to produce local wine. In fact, the schistous soils of the Carrazeda de Ansiães and Cima Corgo regions and the dry climate naturally produce: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Rufete Rabigato and Códega do Larinho, typical grape varieties of the region.

In the cellar, a minimum of intervention is practiced. Vinification is sulfur-free and fermentations are started spontaneously with natural yeasts. The lees are not stirred on the whites and little extraction marks the reds. The wines are fresh, precise, textured and elegant. It's not a coincidence that 2013, its first vintage, is a real success. After all, Promenor means ""details"" and here nothing is left to chance.
