"The Pato family has been producing wine at Quinta do Ribeirinho since at least the century. XVIII. João Pato started bottling wine from his vineyards in 1970, becoming the first producer/bottler in the Bairrada region after its demarcation.

His son Luis Pato inherited his nonconformist and pioneering spirit, and in 1980 he produces his first wine, a single varietal from Baga of exceptional quality and absolute rarity, which is today sought after by connoisseurs as a treasure.

In 1985, he started two revolutions in Bairrada: he made red wine from de-stemmed grapes and aged in new French oak barrels. In 1988 he plants Baga in "free standing" (non-grafted vines) to understand pre-phylloxera wines and produces the first Vinhas Velhas in the country."- Winery notes
