Quinta do Portal Porto Colheita

Quinta Do Portal has been producing Port wine in the Pinhão valley for more than 100 years, but it has been in the Douro at least since 1477, when the King D. Afonso V grants a portion of land (Comenda de Oliveira) to the noble D. Afonso de Mansilha. Later in 1756, Frei João de Mansilha played a very important role in the demarcation of the Douro and its implementation.

Colheita Ports are wines from a single vintage that are aged in wood for several years and can only be bottled after they have attained 7 years of age. Whilst they age, their young, fruity and fresh aromas develop through oxidation to create a bouquet of dried fruit, toasted wood and spices. The wines also acquire an increased smoothness and their bouquet becomes more harmonious and complex.
