Quinta do Mourão - Mario Braga Herdeiros

Owner Braga family
Vineyards Quinta do Mourão
Vintage Port Brands S. Leonardo, Rio Bom

San Leonardo, usually abreviated S. Leonardo, is the vintage port brand for Quinta do Mourão. They would like to use Quinta do Mourão as their brand, but unfortunately that label is owned by one of the very large wine producers. Quinta de Mourao was bought in 1972 by Mário Braga. When Mário Braga passed away in 1999 the family decided to start producing their own wine and created the company Mário Braga Herdeiros. The Quinta is still run by the second generation of the family.
