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.
This is a blend of unique tawny Ports aged for 7 years in the cellars after a careful selection of the best 6 barrels. The brand is also a tribute to Quinta do Portal’s founder to each one of his 6 grandchildren.
