The History

Quinta de Porrais originally belonged to the legendary Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira (known by the name of Ferreirinha).

Located in the area of the Douro Demarcated Region, Quinta de Porrais is recognized for having defined the world's first organization model for a wine region and for the quality of its wines.

Since 2011, in partnership with Sociedade Agrícola Quinta de Porrais, Santos Lima family is responsible for the production and commercialization of the wines of this historic place.

The Wines

The property's 36 hectares are almost entirely occupied with vineyards, 35 hectares, and the remaining space is being occupied by dispersed olive groves.

In Quinta de Porrais there are 60% of white varieties - Rabigato, Códega do Larinho, Viosinho and Verdelho - and 40% of red varieties - Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão and Tinta Barroca.

Our vineyards in Quinta de Porrais have an average age of 65 years. The older vineyards have an average of more than 80 years and the remaining plots an average of 30 years, being planted in shale soils, at 600 meters of altitude. The soil type is beneficial for the longevity of our wines, allowing musts with greater complexity and aromatic richness.

During the harvest, the grapes are selected manually before being vinified in the cellar, which is nowadays prepared with the most advanced technologies.

Olive Oil

At Quinta de Porrais there can be found olive trees with over 50 years, planted in gentle communion with the vineyards. Cordovil, Verdeal and Carrasquenha are the varieties present.

In 2013 the first "Porrais - Extra Premium Virgin Olive Oil" was produced, in partnership with Casa Santos Lima.

In July 2017 we were again awarded in the Portuguese national contest “Concurso Nacional de Azeites de Portugal” with a gold medal in the category “Azeite de Quinta – frutado maduro”.

The Region

The Region extends along the Douro River, in about 250,000 hectares, and the vineyard area occupies around 40,000 hectares. Surrounded by the mountains of Marão and Montemuro, Quinta de Porrais is protected against the winds that are felt in this region.

Its viticulture, the main activity of the farmers present in Douro, is characterized by rough weather conditions, in a territory marked by sharp slopes, with shale soils and some granite with great stoniness and absence of arable land. Lack of water is accentuated by poor rainfall throughout the year and so the water reserves are small. There is not much rain at this area - being more concentrated in December and January - which makes the weather quite warm and dry the rest of the year. In winter, the climate is quite cold, requiring great care with the vines.

In 2001 the region was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
