Introduction to Portugal
- For such a small country, Portugal has an incredibly rich vinous landscape. Its two hundred and fifty native grape varieties are vinified most often as blends - with each other and the occasional 'international' variety such as Syrah or Viognier. And with infinite opportunities for experimentation by winemakers; to the consumer, Portugal is all about discovery. We've selected six of our favourite Portuguese wines for this case, which we're sure you'll enjoy exploring!
