About

Legado (‘legacy’) is made by Sogrape VInhos as a tribute to Fernando Guedes and his unreserved passion for highlighting the unique viticultural heritage of the Douro Valley. A true visionary, he was the second generation to head Sogrape Vinhos and one of the first Portuguese oenologists to graduate from the University of Dijon in the mid 1950s. After returning to Portugal, Fernando increasingly believed in the need to draw attention to the quality of ancient vineyards of the Ribeira de Caêdo valley. In 1990, Sogrape acquired Quinta do Caêdo with 22 hectares of vineyards lying across both banks of the river. The estate has a treasure trove of low-yielding old vines, and Legado was launched in 2012 as a cuveé of this exceptional fruit. The Legado brand is made only in truly exceptional vintages, to ensure it continually lives up to its name.
