The 2013 Quinta Do Portal Portal LBV Port is rich and powerful with gorgeous red fruits.
Quinta do Portal is a family fine winemaking company that embraced with passion the “Boutique Winery” concept. We proudly produce DOC Douro wines, premium Port Wines and Moscatel. This project that started in the early 90’s of the XX century, had on its base a centenary estate where our family has been producing Port since the last years of the XIX century. Our commitment to the production of quality wines has been, since the first moment, the heart and soul of Quinta do Portal. This effort, passion, and dedication have been recognized both at a national and international level during the course of the years.
Quinta do Portal vineyards are under integrated farm management, a farming system that has the objective of producing high-quality grapes by using natural resources and regulating mechanisms to replace polluting inputs and to secure sustainable farming. A big variety of grapes, with a multitude of different altitudes, different solar expositions, soils with different compositions, etc. In the field, they apply cultural practices that allow them not only to achieve the quality objectives but also to respect the plant and its fruit. In the winery, the work scheme is based on the respect for the grapes, using gravity in the various operations. This allows them to achieve better quality and at the same time reduce the energy consumption.
