About Mr. Branco:
Pedro Branco’s family have been winegrowers in the Douro for several generations. While in his university studies of Business Management, Pedro, along with his father Eugenio and brother João, decided to start their own Port and Douro wines label. The base for the foundation of Quinta do Portal was one vineyard in the family hands since 1881, another vineyard that Eugenio had bought in 1978 and a stock of Port that had been slowly built since 1974. This was complemented with the acquisition of two more vineyards in 1991.
Pedro has since been responsible for the Export markets of Quinta do Portal as area manager for multiple countries. In 2012, Quinta do Portal was the #1 Douro wine exporter to the U.S. market.
