Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serôdio Borges began their adventure in 2001. At first, they had no vineyards of their own but had a common dream of developing a personal project in which they could express their enological vision. The name Wine & Soul results from great passion and total dedication to wine. The company's objective is the development of exceptional wines in the Pinhão valley, the historic heart of the great Port wines. His first wine named Pintas was inspired by the couple's bold vision. That which was at first a wine project is now a reference in the wines of the Douro, using for such grapes of old vines with more than 30 mixed grape varieties. It reveals the grandeur and natural richness of the Douro region very faithful to the traditions of it. Later they developed the Pintas Character, White Guru, the Vintage Pintas Port and the distinctive 5G Port Wine that results from a lot of very old wines, some of them more than a hundred years old. The wines of Quinta da Manoella born in 2009. A property with vines over a hundred years old as well as young people 30 years and some even more recent vineyards. Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas has quickly gained great recognition and is today one of the great Douro wines. Wine & Soul reveals the image of the modern Douro: a Douro in which the nature and characteristics of each vine speak louder. With minimal intervention during winemaking, it is its unique terroir that each year the nature shapes that determine the characteristics of each wine.
