PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Porca de Murça is Douro’s leading brand, having celebrated 85 years of existence in 2013, and becoming one of Portugal’s oldest wine brands. The brand originated from a folktale from the small village of Vila de Murça, in the Douro Valley.

It is said that at the time, there was a large female boar living in the woods near the village that was responsible for the destruction of the fields and its plantations. Having been, for many years, a torment for people of the village, they one day decided to unite the best hunters of the region to hunt down the boar. A statue was erected and placed in the Centre of the Village as a tribute to this mighty boar, making it an icon of the village and region.
