Originally from Sonoma Valley California, I have been working in the wine industry for over 10 years. I started working in sales and wine tourism then went into winemaking in 2014. In 2016 I moved to France to pursue a Master’s degree in viticulture, enology and soil science at the University of Burgundy. I am currently part of the Terroir Cartography team at the French Institute of Vines and Wine in Angers, France. I am passionate about plants, fungi, travel and, of course, wine and viticulture.

FROM THE PRE-PHYLLOXERA SOCALCOS TO THE NARROW MODERN TERRACES.

Date of Birth: 13th October 1965, Porto, Portugal. BSC (Oen): Director and Winemaker / The Faldgate Partnersip.
David Guimaraens is sixth generation descendant of the founder of Fonseca Guimaraens. David formalized his education in oenology at Roseworthy Agricultural College in South Australia. Both during his academic training and at the start of his career he worked at several wineries in Australia and America before returning to Portugal in 1990.
David oversees viticulture, winemaking and the ageing of the Ports in Vila Nova de Gaia.
Supported by his viticulture team, David has focused his efforts on the evolution of sustainable mountain viticulture models, by combining traditional, empirical practices with modern viticultural techniques.
In the winemaking arena, David was a pioneer in the modernization of fermentation technology for Port Wine in the 1990’s, practices which now sit side by side with the traditional methods of making Vintage Port. He is particularly focused on the quality of the spirit used to fortify the wines and in the use of a broad range of traditional grape varieties.
