Quinta do Passadouro

Owner Quinta do Noval

Quinta do Passadouro belonged to Dieter Bohrmann since 1991. Until 2003 this quinta was a joint venture between Bohrmann and Dirk Niepoort and supplied grapes to wines from Niepoort. Also Vintage Ports were declared under the quinta name with Jorge Borges, from Wine & Soul, as wine maker. In 2019 the quinta was bought by neighbouring Quinta do Noval.
