Kompassus, owned by João Póvoa, is a company dedicated to the production of wines of excellence supported by organic production methods and sustainable viticulture practices, since 2005.
João Póvoa is an ophthalmologist by profession but a passionate farmer who started producing wines in 1991 with Quinta de Baixo, but his passion for the world of wine is much older. From an early age he realised the potential of Bairrada - the soils, the climate and its grape varieties. Baga was chosen as the basis for all his red and sparkling wines. They are essentially natural wines from small productions, in practice 25 years of dedication to wine production. His family was one of the first to produce the traditional style of Bairrada wines, often called "Bairrada Clássico".
The vineyards are located in the parish of Cordinhã, characterized by soils predominantly clay-calcareous with strong sun exposure to the south. The grapes of the Baga grape variety come from old vines with approximately 70 years of age. The base of vines are native varieties such as; Bical, Maria Gomes, Cercial and Baga. Besides these, Touriga Nacional has Merlot and Pinot Noir, Verdelho and Alvarinho. The vineyards are guided by organic practices and sustainable viticulture, in an organic way providing natural wines.
Anselmo Mendes is responsible for oenology since 2012.
