Ramos Pinto Lagrima Branco
White port is one of the world's most civilized aperitifs. Made from Malvasia Fina and Codega grapes (mostly grown on the Ramos Pinto estate) that are picked quite ripe, this wine is then aged for three years in traditional port barrels called 'pipes.'
Codega, Malvasia Fina, and Rabigato. Casa Ramos Pinto was established in 1880 and acquired by Champagne Louis Roederer in 1990. Among Port producers, Ramos Pinto enjoys the distinction of holding the largest proportion of vineyards in relation to its production, giving it a high degree of control over viticultural methods and harvest time. The casa tends 460 acres of prime vineyards in the Alto Corgo and Douro Superior areas of the famed Douro region, the mountainous valley formed by the Douro River and its tributaries. The four quintas or estates that make up Ramos Pinto's holdings are the Quinta do Bom Retiro, Quinta de Ervamoira, Quinta de Urtiga, and Quinta do Bons Ares. Ramos Pinto still holds today the strong determination of its founder, Adriano Ramos Pinto, to produce and select the best grapes from its own estates in the Douro delimited region for the production of its wines. From these unique terroirs to the glass, each porto has been conceived by Joao Nicolau de Almeida.
