Book with 50cl Bottle Adriano Reserva
In 1880, Adriano Ramos Pinto, a 21 year old artist, decided to start a wine company in Porto. In 1896, his brother António, a photographer, joins the business and the artistic spirit leads them to invest in a daring image of unusual quality, an advestising heritage that no other Port brand can compete with.
In its vast land in Douro (the oldest region of the world, created in 1756 by the Marquis of Pombal), Pinto Ramos continues to grow the grapes for the White Port, Ruby and Tawny. Their 1930's cellars and offices remain intact and are reason enough to visit the Vila Nova de Gaia pier, named Ramos Pinto Avenue to honour these wine artists.
This beautifully illustrated book tells the story of the wine makers and the artistic project they conjured alongside the Porto adventures. It is a wealth to be treasured.
