Miguel Leal’s link to the wine world dates back to his childhood on a small family wine estate run by his grandfather and father. The vineyards were located in the north of Portugal in the wine growing region of the Vinho Verde. As a child, Miguel has fond memories of visiting the winery during harvest and helping with things like bottling and labeling the wines.
After graduating from university in Porto with a degree in international relations, Miguel started his career working in the family businesses for many years. The wine world’s siren call grew too strong to resist and in 2011 he decided to pursue his passion for a career in the world of wine and combine it with his other passion, automobiles and driving by founding ML-Private Tours.
