About US

Grace Campbell Ltd was established in 2003 as a specialist importer of Portuguese wines, ports and gourmet olive oils. Today we have in our portfolio over 80 wines, 12 ports and 5 olive oils. The portfolio list is refreshed ongoing and each year we like to add new wines from new producers and reluctantly we will delist wines not performing in the marketplace.

We continue to receive good reviews for our wines, with the press and TV here, and at the international awards events and also with the Portuguese wine critics. We have listed the off-licence stockists as of April 2016. Our wines and ports are listed in many of the top restaurants, golf clubs, and private establishments around Ireland. If you discover a very good quality Portuguese wine that I should take a look at, please email me. Thank you for drinking Portuguese wines… they really are very good.

Wine Regions

Alentejo

Alentejo is well worth getting to know. All that is said about the Alentejo is true: light, unrelenting sun, dryness, endless undulating plains, cork trees and holm-oaks, wine and olive oil, bread sauces and lamb stews, coriander and purslane, big modern wines and old clay-pot fermented reds; good, hospitable folk.

Once upon a time Alentejo vines were cultivated by Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans. Nowadays they are grown on vast farms and wine-producing estates and their wines have put the name Alentejo among the best wines in Portugal, while its culinary tradition is regarded as one of the most tasty and original. A world of different flavours that requires time to understand and appreciate – just like the rest of the Alentejo.

Douro

Created in 1756 by the government of the Marquis of Pombal, as the first demarcated and regulated region in the world, the Alto Douro Wine Region, is an outstanding example of a traditional wine-producing region, famous not only for its Port wine, but also for its more recent high quality table wines. All these wines come from the terraces that surround the river Douro and its tributaries, where walls made of schist support the vineyards full of white or red grapes. Not only is the landscape ialtered by the production of wine, but also the pace of life of the Douro. If the winter is marked by the calm and quietness, which seems to be reflected in the bare vines, the transition from the summer to the autumn brings the bustle of the harvest with a fall and rise of baskets and pruning shears, on the slopes populated by workers. Recognising the importance of the landscape and the traditional wine production activities, in 2001, UNESCO classified 24 600 hectares of the Alto Douro Wine Region, divided into 13 counties, as a World Heritage Site.

lisboapic
Lisboa/Setubal/Beira Interior

Green and fertile, beaten by intense light and caressed by a climate tempered by the Atlantic influence; this is the picture set by the rolling lands which wind around the Lisbon region and of all the wine-growing regions it is the one which shows the most pronounced diversity, from the geology to the typology of the soils where alluvial lands contrast with the slopes where secondary limestone abounds and the lowlands lie opposite the mountainous massifs of the eastern border.

The Peninsula de Setubal region is steeped in vine-growing tradition and is the realm of two famed grape varieties: the red Castelao and the white Moscatel.

tejopic
Tejo
The Tejo region extends along the fertile plains and has a gentle climate, heavily influenced by the River Tagus running through it. Vines are planted throughout the three distinct areas of the region; the lush riverbank fields (Leziria ou Campo) ideal to the whites, the limestone area north of the river (Bairro) ideal for the reds and the sandy soils south of the river (Charneca) which induce an harmonization both for white and red wines.

Minho

“Vinho Verde” is one of the world’s largest delimitated wine regions, covering some 7000 square kilometres in the Minho province. It has a strong geographic, climatic and cultural identity, explaining why “Vinho Verde” is regarded as Portugal’s most original wine. Humid, fertile, with granitic soils and mild temperatures influenced by the Atlantic winds, the region seems to be painted with all the greens in the palette.

Quinta da Lixa

daopic
Dao

With the imposing Serra da Estrela mountains looming on the horizon, the Dao, with its wet winters and hot, dry summers is a region of smallholdings, of lush vegetation, clean air and countless limpid streams running over granite beds. Pine, oak and chestnut trees are common, but vines predominate – over 70 million of them.
