Jorge Rama is a manager from Bairrada in the municipality of Mealhada and received from his father, Joaquim Rama, the passion for vineyards and the wine. The production of oil and eggs, took over in 2002 the vineyards and the winemaking and bottling of its grapes, with a mark of Rama family, their wines and sparkling facility in Bairrada own, but insufficient for their aspirations and ambitions as an entrepreneur by nature.
Since 1998 that A. Selas had already been advising in the vineyard and in the winery´s father Joaquim Jorge Rama and Jorge Rama later, having restructured part of the vineyard and tuned the preparation of sparkling wines. Currently the vineyard explored has about 15 ha, based on highly calcareous soils something stony clay-limestone and sandy loam in two distinct wine stains. The white varieties are Chardonnay, Bical, Arinto and Sauvignon Blanc; the red varieties are Baga, Touriga Nacional, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tinta Roriz.
António A. Coelho Selas is natural from in Mealhada and, although he had been born in his parents restaurant, early liked the "environment" of the Bairradinas Cellares accompanying his father who was in frequent visits with clients. So, he graduated in Agronomy in the specialty food industry in 1981 and as a winemaker, having interned and worked at the Wine Station in Anadia until 1984, immediately began work as a consultant in cellars, cooperatives and producers especially in Bairrada later also as responsible for viticulture where he has accompanied some farms.
The work in viticulture and enology that he was developing in 1993, led him to plant his own vineyard and first bottled in 1996 his first Bairrada sparkling, branded Milheiro Selas, the name of his three sons. The evolution and the desire to consolidate the project as winemaker, that joined his son António in 2005, led the vineyard area in this day at 14.5 ha. The white varieties are Chardonnay, Arinto, Fernão Pires and Cerceal; the red varieties are Touriga Nacional, Baga, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
The desire to do better in the wine activity of each, took Jorge Rama and Antonio Selas to implement a project with size and profitability that will allow their wines, combining synergies of different knowledge and working skills, to face the market with another force and could naturally monetize effort.
