Portugal? That's where Port comes from isn't it? Well yes, but this extraordinary country produces a bewildering array of fine unfortified wines as well that are made from all sorts of weird and wonderful grape varieties we've never heard of. But everyone's talking about the amazing value for money wines that you can find from Portugal - and as the saying goes:
"If you don't recognize the grape variety on a Portuguese wine label, it's a good thing."
Because Portugal's wine culture developed in relative isolation, there are many grape varieties that do not grow anywhere else in the world. So, if you don't recognize the grape variety on a Portuguese wine label, don't worry - that's normal! All told, there are over 250 indigenous varieties that thrive in the hot Portuguese weather, and are just delicious. To the wine trade, Portugal is the last frontier of wine in Western Europe; there is still so much to be tasted and explored. So with all the excitement that this region offers, let's let the foremost importer and expert on Portuguese wines, Raymond Reynolds, take us through a delicious range of some of the best wines that Portugal has to offer, and learn something about this intriguing wine country in the process!
