Chão da Portela Concept
Selecting a name was very simple: we wanted a name linked to the company that we had just created – Sociedade Agrícola Santa Eugénia – and, obviously, something connected with the family’s own history.
And so the name CHÃO DA PORTELA came up, in fact the name of the first “quinta” (plot of vineyard) bought by the current generation’s great grandfather back in 1880.
This is a wine that both before and after the company’s constitution won consecutive Gold and Silver medals in many highly respected national competitions.
CHÃO DA PORTELA’s image is, and will always be, sober and traditional: classic labels and the austere lines of Burgundy bottles. A classic image perfectly aligned with the elegance of the wine which holds its name.
