Winemaker: Vadio's wine maker, Luis Patrao is doing it right - in 2017 Vadio was awarded Wine & Spirits Magazine’s top 100 wineries in the world. Luis founded Vadio in 2005 with his family’s small 1.2 acre vineyard in Bairrada. He brought on his father to farm the grapes and rehabbed an old rural pharmacy as his winery.
Bairrada, close to the Atlantic, is known for sparkling wine and suckling pig. The average vineyard size is a mere .05 acre. 17,000 of the region’s 50,000 acres of vines, have been abandoned by younger generations who inherited the land yet live in the city. Luis and other young winemakers are seizing the opportunity to acquire vines and make the classic still and sparkling wines that rarely leave the region.
