Portugal produces many high-quality wines, but the ones that compete with the best in the world often come from the Douro Valley, where Touriga Nacional and others grow on steep, terraced vineyards overlooking the Douro River. The region’s wineries, also known as Quintas, produce sweet Port and, more recently, red table wine. Some of the best wine in Portugal comes from this exciting region and includes Quinta do Noval Vintage Port, Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas, Niepoort ‘Vertente’ Tinta Amarela Blend, and Niepoort Ruby Port. These wines are known for their complexity, depth of flavour, and ability to age well. Other notable Portuguese wines include Frasqueiras Reservas Pereira D’Oliveiras, Fonseca Bin 27, and Quinta do Vallado Douro Tinto. When choosing a Portuguese wine, it’s essential to consider the grape variety, the region and the winemaker’s style. Although Portuguese wine’s quality is overall high, winemakers also produce ordinary wines for everyday enjoyment, which are less expensive than their more sought-after bottles.
