PO Quinta Do Portal 29 Grapes Reserve Porto
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.
The Portal 29 Grapes is a field blend from old Port vineyards where you can find a large number of different grape varieties. It’s a reserve Port that results of a selection of the finest ruby lots carefully aged in the cellars between 4 and 5 years.
