Viña Porta began in 1954 when the Gutiérrez-Porta family arrived in Chile from Spain and settled in the Alto Cachapoal Valley, south of the historic city of Rancagua. The family originally sold its wine to the traditional Chilean wineries, but in 1991 they decided to launch their own line of wines under the name, “Casa Porta,” thereby becoming one of Chile’s first boutique wineries. In 1997 Viñedos y Bodegas Córpora SA acquired Porta. Under new administration, Porta developed a new orientation based on the concept of “terroir” and focused on the production of fine wines for demanding consumers. Today, Viña Porta’s plantations are strategically located in Chile’s most important wine regions: Aconcagua, Maipo, Alto Cachapoal, Colchagua, and Bío-Bío. Porta’s vineyards are planted to varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Carménère, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir, each planted in its proper terroir under the supervision of highly qualified Read more »

  • Porta "Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva" Aconcagua Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is dark ruby and opaque at the core, showing ripeness of the fruit.  The nose exhibits leather, dark cherries, and chocolate.  On the palate, there is more chocolate, dark cherries, and pepper.  Although it seemed a bit hot, the wine had a long, attractive finish and good tannic structure.

  • Porta Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2008

    Snoothrank:

    The 2008 Porta Cabernet from Aconcagua, Chile, is a solid, sophisticated wine for $16. This wine has a bright fruity, almost menthol nose with a prominent stinky, earthy edge. It tasted a little harsh and disjointed right out of the bottle, but after an hour and a half of decanting, this wine really opened up. Flavors of black cherry, mint, lico... Read More

  • Porta Maipo Valley Reserva Carmenere 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I thought this was an excellent wine...components of black pepper, blackberries, (and an, as of yet, unidentified aroma) smooth with unexpected soft tannins. Great finish, balanced...wonderful. Read More

  • My last email had me in Montepulciano, enjoying the wine, and the view. It really is a wonderful view, high above the rolling fog with other hilltop villages in the distance. Enchanting. Unfortunately the time comes when one must leave Montepulciano on high, and continue on one’s way. Which in my case lead to additional wineries, and a drive thr... Read More

  • Four Rivers Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenere 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Nothing wrong with it, but nothing really special either. Quite delicate with nice vanilla-raspberry hints. Drank it on its own, but I think it would go well with peppery steak or chops. Read More

  • As far as I'm concerned, there is no better way to end the day than reading a good book while sipping a glass of good port. Here's the challenge: port's not cheap. The very best port I've had was a Taylor Fladgate 20 Year Old Tawny Port. I loved its complexity, but at nearly $50 a bottle, that's an occasional indulgence at best. I tried some Fon... Read More
