I seem to remember seeing or drinking a Quinta del Rey in a galaxy far, far away but cannot find any TNs.

Can anyone else remember that?

Is "del" a Portuguese word in that context? I don't recognize it, but my Portuguese is pretty limited.

I can't find an example of it so you are probably correct.

We drank a Quinta do Rey 1960 at Tom's 50th birthday, although that was from The Sound of Music and not from Star Wars.

Well remembered, although it was Quinta do Rei, not Quinta do Rey. I am please that I wasn't just hallucinating.
