DOMINGOS SOARES FRANCO PRIVATE COLLECTION
V.R. PENÍNSULA SETÚBAL
Domingos Soares Franco is the younger brother in the sixth generation of the family that has run José Maria da Fonseca since its foundation in 1834. As both Vice-
President and senior winemaker of the company, Domingos has become a prominent figure in the field of Portuguese winegrowing.
He was the first Portuguese national to graduate in Fermentation Sciences (Viticulture and Enology) from the University of California in Davis, USA. This achievement is important in the influence it has had on his view of vines and wines: although intending to maintain the distinctive features of Portuguese wines he is constantly looking to the future, seeking innovation whenever possible.
Labelled “Domingos Soares Franco Private Collection”, these are all varietal wines. With the same enthusiasm and passion with which he has developed his latest experiences, he presents again the Colecção Privada Sauvignon Blanc with 15% of Verdejo..
