The Portal da Águia winery's name translates to "Eagle's Gate". Although these mighty birds of prey deserve the accolades for their work in the vineyards (they are good at crushing grapes with their talons, quickly spot problems amongst the vines and keep the vineyards free of pests), we should not forget that this is a team effort. So as you sip this gorgeous Portuguese red, spare a thought for the wise owls in accounting, the flamboyant parakeets in marketing and the pelicans in logistics. The poor birds do really struggle with those corks though.


Portal da Águia means Eagle's Gate, which is the main entrance to Quinta da Alorna. Quinta da Alorna was established in 1723, by Dom Pedro de Almeida, the first Marques de Alorna, who gave his name to the property following the conquest of Fort Alorna in India. The vineyards are located in the centre of Portugal, near Santarém, in the Tejo Region and are the largest in the region.
