Considered the best winemaker in 2004 by Portugal’s most popular wine magazine Revista de Vinhos, Paulo Laureano is a renowned oenologist from the Alentejo region (Alter do Chão). Whilst taking a degree in Agricultural Engineering at Évora University, Laureano discovered his life-long passion for the world of wine, and took his post-graduation course in Oenology both in the Portuguese city of Oporto and Australia. Later he started his consulting career and worked as a lecturer and researcher within the field.
Presently Laureano is providing Ribafreixo Wines with consulting services for our wines. Time and time again his personal style and passion for winemaking makes our wines not only a tribute to the Alentejo region, but especially to the town of Vidigueira. Laureano is known for what he does best…excellent wines!
