As we know, Port Wine is a wine filled with emotion and magic. The origin of the "São Leonardo" brand began with Quintas da Costa and Poisa, where two families lived there, one on each farm, whose caretakers were brothers.
As there were no long-distance journeys at the time, the roads were very rudimentary. Thus, it was precisely in the middle of the road that they met, in the magnificent viewpoint of São Leonardo da Galafura, which inspired great poets, such as Miguel Torga, and continues today to enchant its visitors who visit the amazing viewpoint that inspired most of the poet's work. That is why the Port Wines "São Leonardo" represent, in a certain way, a meeting of brothers.
