Notes from Kestral Wine & Spirits:

"João Nicolau de Almeida, who's mother's family once owned the majority of the Ramos Pinto Port house, joined the Ramos Pinto team in 1976. Through his almost 40 year career with the company he was an instrumental figure in the emergence of table wines and increase in quality as a whole. He along with José António Ramos PintoRosas helped identify the five recommended varieties of the region. He introduced the vertical vines to the Douro, and along the way was the director of two important Port-centric associations.

Another important "accomplishment" in João's life are his two son' s João and Mateus, along with his daughter Mafalda. The four together, are all involved in a dream "project" called Quinta do Monte Xisto.

Over the course of 15 years, João purchased 20 parcels of what would become known as Quinta do Monte Xisto. Located at the mouth of the Côa River, near the town ofVila Nova de Foz Côa, "SchistMountain" is 40 hectares in total, with 10 hectares planted to a mixture of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, and Souzão."
