Casa Ferreirinha Papa Figos Red 2015 has a deep ruby colour with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of violet and rock rose, balsamic aromas of resin and cedar and well ripened red and black fruit. On the palate, it has good volume, well-integrated acidity, high-quality tannins and black and red fruit notes. Its finish is elegant and harmonious.

ENJOY

Papa Figos is a great food wine, an ideal partner for all kinds of poultry and meat, charcuterie and cheeses.

EXCELLENCE, NOBILITY AND TRADITION


Under Dona Antónia, who was twice widowed, finding herself in charge of a large company, she consolidated admirably. Her entrepreneurial spirit taught her to predict, decide, create, teach and love, making her a hugely prominent, charismatic figure.

With the death of Dona Antonia, the business became a limited company and began a new stage of adapting to market developments, while remaining rooted in the quality obtained through the unique heritage of its Douro estates, supported by the best œnological methods, to produce excellent wines under one strong brand.

These values carried Casa Ferreirinha all the way to the present day and were crucial to creating and continuing this brand’s great wines as well as constituting a unique heritage and an unparalleled historical archive. Thorough knowledge of the Douro Superior, the features of its climate and soil and carefully selecting the varieties to be used also came to be crucial to the company's strategy. This strategy, backed by 250 years of experience in the Douro Region, in 1978 led Casa Ferreirinha to acquire Quinta da Leda, located at Almendra, Vila Nova de Foz Coa, with its very modern winery which was to be completed by Sogrape Vinhos in 2001.

The grapes of these vineyards, of a quality surpassing the most optimistic expectations, processed using the expertise of a team led by winemaker Luís Sottomayor, provided the basis for Casa Ferreirinha's premium wines, including the renowned Barca Velha and Reserva Especial, and also Quinta da Leda and Callabriga.

This solid framework has allowed Casa Ferreirinha to extend its portfolio to various market segments. Vinha Grande and Esteva, two benchmarks in their own categories, are also marketed under the brand's auspices.


Of all the birds in the Douro, the golden oriole (papa figos in Portuguese) is one of the rarest. It’s an attractive, brightly-coloured migratory bird, unique and rare, and thus the perfect inspiration for this lovely wine from Casa Ferreirinha. Papa Figos is a Douro red that is ideal for everyday drinking as well as for special occasions. It’s an elegant but vibrant wine, classic yet modern, imbued with all the values of Casa Ferreirinha. Casa Ferreirinha is the oldest producer of quality table wines in the Douro, and one of the main standard-bearers for the region throughout the world.
