NADIA RODRIGUES

Nádia Rodrigues was born in Porto and has never had connections with wine. Partially yes, by her mother who worked with the classic wine producers of Douro and Porto when Nádia was still 6 years old. With her mouth sweetened by Port wine, Nádia has never seen more than a simple acquired taste, even if an early one. At the age of 18, after completing her studies in Science, she decides to pursue Philosophy at the University of Porto.

At the same time, she starts the so-called “summer break” by making wine promotions for Quinta do Noval to make the extra money. Since then the wine bug was born, and the taste for the vineyard began. She finishes her studies keeping the work with Quinta do Noval, which extends alongside the 3 years of her degree. She then completed studies in International Relations and then took a Specialization Course in Viticulture and Oenology. All this looking from afar at a world that was never yours, working around a passion that she never thought to be her own.

 

She worked at Niepoort before arriving at Carlos Lucas - she only worked at two companies before cementing herself at Magnum. It was at Niepoort that she discovered more about the wines of Dão and Bairrada, regions that she now considers the most imposing and charismatic in Portugal. From then on, an approach seemed inevitable, voluntary or not, towards the altitude of Dão or the acidity of Bairrada.

 

She believes that one can only know by doing - naturally, she always had a nose for it, but now she believes she is in the right place with the right people. A constant learning, with the humbleness of those who have not been connected to the vineyards since forever and with the intuition, will and creativity of those who want to know how to do more and better. Nádia believes that there cannot be two better masters of wines than Carlos Lucas and Carlos Rodrigues to teach her what Dão and all other regions of the country have to show the world.
