In 2001, Sandra Tavares da Silva (Quinta do Vale D. Maria and Quinta de Chocapalha) and her husband Jorge Borges (then Niepoort, now Passadouro) started to realize their dream. They bought a 2 ha vineyard of very old sticks in Vale de Mendiz next to Noval. The annual harvest is 4000 bottles and 100 Magnums. From the first harvest they have become icons of the Douro and are nationally and internationally acclaimed for the charm and character of their wines that represent the unique terroir of the Douro region.

The Guru comes from the DOC Douro (Cima Corgo) of 50 year old sticks in the Pinhão Valley. This branco is made from the typical grape varieties Gouveio, Viosinho, Rabigato and Códega do Larinho. The wine is aged for 8 months in mainly used French oak barrels. On the palate, the Guru is dry, luscious, complex with stone fruit, lime, grapefruit, light toasted notes and hint of vanilla. Wonderfully mineral with pleasant bitterness with very pleasant refined acids and long finish. This fantastic white Portuguese wine has enormous storage potential and is a perfect accompaniment to grilled (fatty) fish, shellfish and poultry.

Fact: The Gouveio is the Portuguese name of the famous Spanish Godello grape.

The wine has received 93/100 Parker points.
