Papa Figos

The most cheerful bird in the Douro, from the legendary Casa Ferreirinha.

Client: Sogrape Vinhos, S.A.

Casa Ferreirinha’s repertoire is enriched, since 2010, by a more accessible wine that sought to maintain the strong personality and nature of its predecessors.

The wines Papa Figos (that means “fig eater”) are born to honour a small bird that finds shelter in Ribeira de Aguiar during Spring, most precisely in Quinta da Leda. Just like the bird, whose bright yellow feathers catch the observer’s eye, so does this wine persist in the memory of its tasters. Through the indefinable art of illustration, we captured the liveliness and beauty of this bird, today imprinted on thousands of bottles. In line with its catchy name, this image, and therefore this wine, is what comes to mind to whoever might hear of “Papa Figos”.
