About us

Antonio established Portal Wines and Spirits in 2015 after a 22 years career in hospitality. During his years as a restaurateur, Antonio always sourced his wines directly from Portugal vineyards building strong relationships with the producers. Portal Wines and Spirits continue to work with a select number of enthusiastic and interesting winemakers from the length and breadth of Portugal and are always looking for new and exciting wines. Our team, though small, is knowledgeable, highly trained and will give any help or guidance you may need. Portuguese wine can be a little daunting, what with relatively unknown varieties and regions, but once you begin to scratch the surface, you will see why we do what we do. The quality of the winemaking in Portugal these days is incredible – drop us a line and we will come and show you!

Marco My love for wines started in Italy 10 years ago in a champagne bar.  Since then, I have taken a lot of WSET courses, and have achieved the court of master sommelier certified level.  I first visited the Douro 4 years ago, and that was when I fell in love with Portuguese wines.
