area of 15 hectares, all delimited by schist walls. As white grape
varieties we have malvasia Fina, Gouveio and Viosinho and in the red

is working since 1994 and here we are able to produce every kind of wine
in the best winemaking conditions.
Cellars: Every year we buy french, american and russian oak barrels
where we age our DOC Douro wines. We also have "balseiros", "toneis" and
"pipas" used for the ageing of our Ports and Moscatel wines.
In this area we also have our bottle ageing section and quality control
Our wine production is based on the diversity of the Douro. A big
variety of grapes, different altitudes, different solar expositions,
soils with different compositions, etc. In the field we apply cultural
practices that allow us not only to achieve our quality objectives but
also to respect the plant and its fruit.
In our winery, the work scheme is based on the respect for the grapes
and the musts we have to process, using gravity in the various
operations. This allows us to achieve better quality and at the same
time reduce the energy consumption.
In order to increase our knowledge we make several experiences and
micro-vinifications every vintage, that in the end benefit our already
distinctive and personalized wines.
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.
In our vineyards we use the following practices:
• non-mobilization of the soil;
• integration of the wood that results from pruning in the soil;
• non-utilization of residual herbicides;
• low volume debits in the application of phytopharmaceuticals;
• usage of organic correctives;
• in slopes up to 40% of inclination we plant “Vinha ao Alto” (vertical
• in slopes between 40-60% we plant one line of vineyard terraces,
avoiding the use of herbicides between the terraces.
With the above practices we protect the auxiliary organisms, namely from
the coccinellidae family. We’re also happy to see that bands of
partridges have come back to our vineyards.
