About Pedro 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 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 been responsible for the export markets of Quinta do Portal managing multiple countries. In 2012, Quinta do Portal was the number 1 Douro wines exporter to the US market.
