Portento Range

Exceptional Qualities

The line of Portento wines is a collection of single varietal wines made in amphoras. We seek the exclusivity and authenticity of each of the varieties we grow.

A young white made from the Sauvignon Blanc variety, fermented in a jar.

The Sauvignon Blanc variety is a grape of French origin, related to red cabernet sauvignon. A grape with natural acidity and great aromatic potential, it captivates with its intense aromas of stone fruit and passion fruit.

The etymology of the word sauvignon comes from the French sauvage (meaning savage or wild) because the shape of its leaves are similar to wild vines. The griffon vulture is a wild, majestic bird with a sociable character and a travelling soul.

It also goes by the name lion vulture, referring to the tawny color of its feathers, since its cinnamon and oche tones are similar to those of a lion’s fur.

This shows when this great bird rises majestically over the Mediterranean Sea!

Also known as Cencibel or Tinto Fino, the Tempranillo grape is the native variety of our land that adapts to all tastes. Its name is due to the early maturation of its clusters compared to the rest of the varieties.

Lively and friendly, the agility of the squirrel inspired us to decorate our Portent Tempranillo bottle.
