Pessoa Wines was born in 2009, when winemaker Jorge Gonçalves and the South African winery MAN Family Wines launched a promising enterprise combining Jorge´s passion for Portugal and his know-how acquired in Germany, where he trained as a winemaker. From a very early age, he was already very attracted to the country where his parents were born and which would be the home to his own business in the future. Therefore, being able to produce in Portugal means more than just work, but also fulfilling a dream.

A blend of Alvarinho, Loureiro, and Trajadura fermented in tank.  Refreshing and lively with dazzling citrus scents and spring flowers. Beautiful balance between acidity and sweetness, lively and elegant with a longl-asting and flavorful finish.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Jorge Gonçalves completed a Master’s Degree in Economics only to discover that what he really wanted was to make wine. Switching direcLon, he first started working at  the wellknown German Pinot Noir producer, Meyer-Näkel, in 2006, gaining his first practical wine knowledge in the Ahr wine region in Germany. During an internship at Stark-Condé in South Africa, the idea for a Portuguese project was born. After finishing his degree in Viticulture and Enology at Geisenheim in Germany, Jorge jumped straight into the Portuguese project, searching for regions and varieLes that can produce exciting, fruit forward, modern-styled Portuguese wines.
