WINEMAKING TEAM

COMPANY

A team of specialists contribute to the ongoing development of José Maria da Fonseca

In terms of Enology, and in addition to the investment in the Fernando Soares Franco Winery, there is a strong human component closely linked to the quality of the José Maria da Fonseca wines.

Under the leadership of Domingos Soares Franco - the first Portuguese enologist to graduate from the recognized University of Davis in California - a team of hand-picked enologists are responsible for undertaking a wide range of research, studies, experiments and innovation that make José Maria da Fonseca a pioneer in much of what is done in terms of Enology and Viticulture in Portugal and in the world.

This is a job that starts in the vineyard, covers the entire production process and ends in the bottled wine made available to the consumer.
