About Ramos Pinto
Founded by Adriano Ramos Pinto in 1880, Casa Ramos Pinto pioneered an innovative and ambitious business strategy that soon put the company on the map. Purveyor of bottled wines of the highest quality, it quickly became a leading provider in South America while simultaneously winning over numerous loyal customers in Portugal and Europe. This success was due to a progressive approach to selection, blending and aging processes as well as the extra attention given to packaging and promotion.
Casa Ramos Pinto knew that the excellence of their wines derived from the unique terroir of the Douro region, so they made sure to acquire estates with special characteristics which enabled them to control and guarantee the quality of their production. In this way they were able to create truly unique nectars stamped with their signature.
In 1990, Casa Ramos Pinto joined forces with Roederer Group, whose story is quite similar. This partnership allowed Ramos Pinto’s fame and quality products to reach an international level. Thanks to this strategic move, Casa Ramos Pinto has enjoyed global recognition for its world-class wines ever since.
