WELCOME TO PESSOA WINES

Our wines bring each region with its complexities and creativity… discovering the Portuguese Terroir has been a great adventure and a huge pleasure, to understand this land and what it has to say.

OUR HISTORY

 

Pessoa Wines was born in 2009, when the wine maker Jorge Gonçalves and the South African winery, MAN Family Wines, trasformed their expertise into a promissing enterprise. Its xxx comes from combining Jorge´s passion for Portugal and his know-how acquired in Germany, where he trained as a winemaker. From a very early age, he was already very attracted to the country where his parents were born and which would be the home to his own business in the future. Therefore, being able to produce in Portugal means more than just work, but also fulfilling a dream.
