Under the guidance of Domingos Soares Franco – the first Portuguese winemaker to graduate from the recognized University of Davis in California – a team of hand-picked winemakers are responsible for undertaking a wide range of research, studies, experiments and innovation that make José Maria da Fonseca a pioneer in much of what is done in terms of enology in Portugal and in the world. This is a job that starts in the vineyard, covers the entire production process and ends in the bottled wine made available to the consumer.
