The winery is named for winemaker Filipa Pato, though the work is completed by both Filipa and her husband William Wouters. She was a chemical engineer graduate, though had a passion for the indigenous varieties of Bairrada, Portugal, her passion fueled by many international harvests. He was a sommelier and restaurateur. Together they create “wines without makeup” using biodynamic farming, minimal intervention in the cellar, and a shared passion for food and wine.
The three Bs in the name refer to Blanc de Blanc and Filipa’s home of Bairrada. Though Blanc de Blanc is a Champagne term referring to the wine's exclusive use of Chardonnay, this wine is still made from 100% white grapes vinified into a white wine. This is a traditional method sparkling (Champagne method) coming from chalky clay soils with proximity to the Atlantic. It's aged for nine months on the lees. Its value is remarkable for the quality delivered.
