Arribas Wine Company

Arribas Wine Company project began to take shape in 2017 when its founders Frederico Machado and Ricardo Alves embarked on a journey of self-discovery. Their quest took them to Bemposta, a small village in the municipality of Mogadouro.  Machado’s grandparents are from the village but the potential of Bemposta’s old vineyards failed to pique his interest until fate brought him to a party in the village.

Teaming up with Alves, the pair – micro-negociants, who buy grapes – swiftly extended their project beyond Bemposta. There they found centurian vineyards with breathtaking views and outstanding potential. Tinta Gorda, Malvasia, Bastardo, Verdelho, Rufete, Bastardo Branco, Verdelho Vermelho, Tinta Serrana (among other varieties yet to be identified), altitude, a wide variation of soils and exposures, traditional and sustainable viticulture and minimal intervention winemaking are the conducting wires of this project, which aims at elevating the full potential of Arribas do Douro and its vineyards. In addition to making wine under Niepoort’s Nat Cool label, they have collaborated on a cuvee that reflects Dirk's signature style.
