The Project

Pessoa Wines was born in 2009 as a project and the realisation of a dream of winemaker Jorge Gonçalves. He always aimed to produce wines in Portugal. In this way he wanted to express his admiration for the land of his Parents.

Jorge was born, grew up and lived for many years in Germany. He studied oenology in Geisenheim. He always wanted to return to the origins of his family and this is how this project was born. It symbolises everything the winemaker believes in: the union of the land, the climate and the soil in the hands of those who cultivate and produce.. Pessoa Wines is the expression of the people behind the label: the Pessoa da Vinha (= Person of the Vineyard).

Lívia Novais is a Brazilian sommelière and fell in love with Portugal. She joins Pessoa Wines in 2015. Together they are part of this young and dynamic project. Within the idea of an itinerant winery, they produce wines in the three regions Douro, Minho and Beira Baixa.
