Filipa Pato comes from a family that’s been making wine for five generations. Rather than just working in her family’s vineyard, she set out to study winemaking in other parts of the world and returned to Portugal to start her own winery in 2001. The focus of her vineyard is to express the terroir of the Bairrada region, located in the western part of the Beira province (south of Porto & Douro). As a part of expressing the Bairrada region, Filipa Pato also has an interest in preserving the prevalence of Baga, a native grape in the region.
The color of the 3B Rosé is a beautiful light pink. It’s soft on the nose, with light yeast, mineral, rose and strawberry aromatics. The palate is quite dry, with firm mineral flavors complemented by lemon and light raspberry. The mouthfeel is fantastically bubbly. It’s a very tasty, mineral-centric sparkler.
