About us

Our History

Digby is inspired by Sir Kenelme Digby, the emblematic and distinctive English philosopher, gourmet, intellectual and member of the Privy Council of King Charles I of England. He published several articles in aristocratic magazines, culminating in his cookbook, "The Closet of the Eminently Learned SIR Kenelme Digbie Kt. Opened". Sir Digby is considered to be the father of the modern translucent wine bottle, hence the focus in Digby is on the bottle – and the fine wines that Portugal has to offer.

Digby is part and parcel of Torel Avantgarde, an award-winning 5-star art boutique hotel in Porto that opened in September 2017 and has become THE destination for the trendy and curious traveller.

 Torel Boutiques is the story of three people whose paths crossed in Lisbon when all of them had decided to change their lives: Joao Pedro Tavares, Barbara Ott, and Ingrid Koeck. Starting with the luxury boutique establishment Torel Palace in Lisbon in 2013, the group expanded in 2017 with the beach escape Torel Cliff near Óbidos, and the newly opened Torel 1884 Suites & Apartments with its Bistro & Wine Bartolomeu in the heart of Porto, in addition to Torel Avantgarde. All our establishments encompass the spirit of comfort and refinement, providing dedicated service, and hosting our guests in a very personal manner.
