Poças Júnior is a traditional family farm from the Douro that just reached the respectable age of one hundred years. The farm was founded in 1918 by then 30-year-old Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, although in its early years the farm focused on selling grape juice to large port wine houses. The farm's first vintage port wine was released in 1962. Today, the farm is managed by the fourth generation. Poças Liiketila was built in Porto's Vila Nova de Gaia, where Poças' offices and impressive port wine cellars are still located today.
Poças has plots in the area of three Quintas. The Poças winery is also located in Baixo Corgo in connection with the 2.5-hectare Quinta das Quartas, acquired in 1932 as debt payment. In 1988, Quinta de Vale de Cavalos was acquired from Douro Superiore and in 1999 Quinta Santa Barbara from Cima Corgo. The estate repairs and restores the oak barrels it procures itself, the raw materials of which are obtained from Portugal, France and Brazil.
Since 1990, Poças has produced not only high-quality port wines but also dry and unfortified red and white wines, the production of which is constantly increasing as the demand for port wines decreases worldwide.
Poças Júnior has recently started a side project, Fora da Série, which aims to produce Douro wines through new ideas. You can read more about the project and its wines produced in small quantities here https://foradaserie.pocas.pt//en/foradaserie .
