Quinta Do Portal
This is a family-run estate based near Celeirós in the Douro Valley where vines have been grown for centuries. The Branco family produces a wide range of wines from light dry whites through easy-drinking reds to cellar-worthy Douro reds and superb fortified muscats.
Portal burst onto the Douro wine scene in the early 1990s making very good wines in a modern style. Winemaker Paulo Coutinho, who was born in a neighbouring village, has been in charge of the winery since 1994. They now have an excellent visitor centre and delightful small hotel on the picturesque slopes adjoining the winery recognised in the Best of Wine Tourism Awards.
Recent investment in the vineyards – they own several properties, all at high altitude – has paid dividends and Pedro Branco, current manager of the business, has his eye on even greater quality.
The 2011 Douro Colheita, bought originally for our Vintage Cellar Plan members, was a winner in our 2014 Wine Championship tasting.

Lively, juicy centre point between subtlety and fruit. What more could you want of a summer rosé? Dry and substantial enough for the table but perfect weight and freshness for drinking on its own. 16/20

There is enough grunt here to use this for all-day buffets or barbies while, at the same time, it is bright enough to serve without grub. Delicious!
