Quintas

Quinta is the Portuguese name for vineyard. Port Exclusive has exclusive A-classified Quinta’s in its range.

The Portuguese law regulating the Port trade requires new producers to have a minimum stock of 150,000 litres before they are allowed to buy grapes to make Port or produce stock for the market. Producers, who own their own vineyards, may only produce and sell port from their own vineyards once this minimum stock has been reached.

Points are awarded for location, altitude, productivity, type of soil, vine clipping, types of grapes, angle of slope, position in relation to the sun, age of vines, density of vines and protection from weather. Each class has about 200 points. The highest rating has over 1200 points. Port Exclusive has exclusive A-classified Quinta’s in its range.
