2018 Guru Branco and 2015 Pintas Character...A Hint of the Garden of Eden in Your Glass
March 23, 2020

 

Jorge Seradio Borges and Sandra Tavares da Silva

This is the story of Jorge Seradio Borges and Sandra Tavares da Silva. It is a compelling, interesting and happy story. After extensive experience making fine wine in Portugal, they decided to get together. They bought a single vineyard in the heart of the Douro region and set out to make wine that perfectly expresses the unique, exceptional terroir of the Douro. Their company is called Wine & Soul. It is an amazing project, always with an eye toward realizing a version of paradise. 

More importantly these are two people that really love dogs. Today’s wines share their names with two of their dogs, Pintas and Guru. The 2018 Wine & Soul Guru Branco is a single vineyard white field blend of four different varieties that has complexity, minerality and great freshness. The 2015 Wine & Soul Pintas Character is a red blend of native Portugese varieties and gives a rich, powerful and well integrated wine. These wines are natural and organic and they will be a unique and terrific surprise for you.
