João Tavares de Pina
João is a man who places biodiversity and the environment above nearly everything else, apart from delicious tasting wines, obviously. His vineyards are surrounded by forests and on granitic soils. He works bio-dynamically, plants trees and cover crops in his vineyards to increase diversity and a natural balance in the eco-system. He is as low-intervention as possible, using as little sulphur as possible. He even ships some of his wines by sail-powered boats from Portugal to Bristol. Amazing!
