The new cellars of Quinta do Portal were built within an already built complex, a unit that dominates and is dominated by the landscape (of vineyards).

There is no doubt that in the essential and whenever active, agriculture moulds the landscape. This is the first reason for the beauty of the Douro. It is by nature, a disciplined building. The functional needs, as well as the space, humidity and temperature needs determine its expression. It’s isolated in the space: discipline that is extended to the territory.
