Born in Viana do Castelo, spent his childhood in PORTO ( Portugal )
He graduated in Management and his passion for life and the vines are notorious.
While growing he was always connected to wines since it was a family business, having inherited the full responsibility of taking care of the vineyards in the 70s. Already in the 80s the plantation of new vineyards in the Douro was permitted under PDRITM project, which also happened with the vineyards of the Paterno Dias family.
The project DePathernos thus intends to be passed on to future generations, as initiated and planned by their ancestors. Making good wine is the constant aim, as can be proved by the national and international awards, and be established consistently in this growing market.
