Embrace viticulture with a stay on the Quinta do Portal estate at Casa das Pipas.

Quinta do Portal is a boutique winery deep in the heart of the UNESCO-protected Alto Douro wine region, specialising in premium Port wines, DOC table wines, Moscatel and olive oil. Casa das Pipas sits in the centre of the vineyards, surrounded on all sides by the rolling terraces of the Pinhao River Valley. Like many of the best examples of Portuguese Turismo Rural, this renovated 19th century farmhouse effortlessly combines cosy comfort with traditional rural décor across its twelve guest rooms.

As the daily bustle of Quinta do Portal is all around you, you might like to learn first-hand how a busy vineyard operates. Sustainability underpins the estate’s approach to agriculture, producing high quality grapes using natural fertilisers and integrated planting over herbicides. The winery is also an active member of the Porto Protocol: an initiative aimed at developing and implementing workable climate solutions within the wine industry. The CO2 produced during fermentation process is reused to ‘blanket’ the wine and naturally prevent oxidation, and the photovoltaic panels which now sit side-by-side with the vines produce 50% of the quinta’s electricity needs.
