Portia is the only winery in the world designed by the famous and prestigious British architect Sir Norman Foster. A spectacular architectural project; a symbol of modernity and the future. A three-pointed star in the heart of Ribera del Duero.
Light, matter and soul; an architectural icon in the world of wine. Employing steel, wood, concrete and glass, its design combines the balance of materials and forms, of architecture and landscape, of earth and sky. Bodegas Portia, a symbol and a certainty.
Inaugurated in October 2010, its creation was a slow process materialising an idea, placing a foundation so it would hold itself in the air. Here, a shelter, a habitat and the anteroom of wines produced therein emerge from the ground. Its impressive aspect and architecture perfectly match the character and personality of its wines, made in a modern style, powerful, rich and elegant.
“The heart of a flower with three petals”
Sir Norman Foster”
The vineyard of Portia is the origin of our wines, owns 160 hectares in the area of Roa, Gumiel de Izán, Villanueva and Gumiel del Mercado. At the heart of Ribera del Duero.
The land is the essence, a land where its wines are born, wines with temperament and personality. They have an intense flavour profile and violet hues. In the mouth, they are unctuous and soft, the result of extreme weather with autumn and even spring frosts, and harsh, long winters.
Portia's terroirs include the exceptional vineyard, Finca La Encina, in Gumiel del Mercado, in the “Golden Triangle” of the Ribera del Duero. It is situated on a hillside in a perfect north-south arrangement, at a height of over 850 meters and devoted exclusively to the Tempranillo variety. Sustainable agriculture practices in this vineyard ensure the utmost respect for nature, allowing the soil itself to feed the grapevine
