Domingos Soares Franco is the younger brother in the 6th generation of the family that has run Jose Maria da Fonseca since its foundation in 1834. As both vice president and senior winemaker of the company, Domingos has become a prominent figure in the field of Portuguese winemaking. This status is not derived solely from his connection to this prestigious Vila Nogueira de Azeitao company, but also from the fact that Domingos Soares Franco was the first Portuguese national to graduate in Fermentation Sciences (Viticulture and Oenology) from the University of California at Davis. This achievement is important in the influence it has had on his view of vines and wines: while intent on maintaining the distinctive features of Portuguese wines, he is constantly looking to the future, seeking innovation wherever possible. ------------------------------------------ Production Area ------------------------------------------ Peninsula de Setubal, Portugal.
