Poças Júnior

In 1918, a few months before the Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, who had been born in the heart of the Port Wine hustle and bustle, decided to establish his own company. Manoel Poças was 30 years old and he had some experience in this business. With his uncle, he created a company to sell grape spirits to large Port Wine shippers. Soon afterwards he opened a head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this day. Today, with three quintas in the best winemaking areas of the Douro Demarcated Region, Poças ensures its total control over the quality of its wines and the family is more involved than ever before.

A ripe and dense wine with hints of vanilla with good mid-palate concentration.

Wine Merchant Top 100, Highly Commended, 2022. 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast. Decanter, Highly Recommended Douro Reds, 2023: "Rich and concentrated dark fruit with mineral aromas. Earthy and elegant forest-floor notes. Palate is lively with good weight and concentration and a lovely spicy finish."
