Téo Pinto is the successor of a small legendary winery from Douro Valley, Portugal.They are the only few who still produces wine traditionally in the world, from cultivating their vineyard to stomping grapes with their legs. Téo himself is involved in all of its process from start to end. Having won 8 consecutive years at their village’s wine competition, their limited products have been sought highly around the world. But it all changed when they lost the recent competition, the judges concluded that they have lost their famous taste and are no longer worthy to be considered a true Port Wine. Téo couldn’t believe it as he himself is involved in every single step.
“Our winery is small and everything is done hands on by myself, my family have been using the same formula for decades so how could the taste have changed when there was no changes at all?”
But it was all clear once Téo himself tasted his own wine, it was a stark difference from what they normally produce. He was shocked and disappointed by his own results, word got out and their customers started losing confidence. Orders were decreasing and many people stopped buying from him. With no orders coming in they are left with nothing but impending bankruptcy.
