Founded by partners Mário Pinheiro and Nuno Bicó, the winery project Ribafreixo Wines comprises the 282 acre Moinho Branco Estate at Vidigueira, a region with a long-standing wine-making tradition. Our winemaker is Paulo Laureano, whose renowned ‘craft of making wine the right way’ has been instrumental for our success and growing presence.
Our mission is to continue producing competitively priced top-quality wines meeting the demands of the Domestic and Global markets. In a world where Portuguese wines are beginning to be recognised for their distinctiveness, our main ambition is to build and strengthen our positioning in the most diverse and demanding international markets, such as the United States, China, Canada and the UK, among others. This hard work combines with our presence in the domestic market, which is a key point in our brand’s communication strategy.
In the increasingly competitive universe of wine, we feel that we have strong differentiating factors, such as our strong bet on Portuguese grapes. It is these factors that make us view the future as sustainable, a view without which no company can succeed today.
