Portugese Wine

(82 products)

Portugal as a wine producing country is sometimes unfortunately overshadowed by its European neighbours, however, it has a long wine making history and the region’s popularity is growing as people start to take notice of its quality and unique character.

The country has a large array of native grape varietals which are used to produce an abundant variety of different wines. Nevertheless, the two most popular wines styles exported are from Vinho Verde and the Douro regions.

Douro is the home of Port wine, and the city of Oporto where the wine gets its name. It is one of the major rivers in Portugal, and with fertile soils around its banks, increased attention has also been given to the Douro region’s non fortified wine production in recent years. Full bodied and concentrated dry reds made from grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Spanish Tempranillo, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinto Cão are all worth a try.

Vinho Verde in the north of Portugal is responsible for producing effervescent, lively, and refreshing white wine that is increasingly becoming Portugal’s most famous. Perfect when served chilled on a hot day, it is known for zingy lime flavours, a sharp minerality and subtle grassiness. The wine is often a blend but will usually be predominantly based on Alvarinho grapes which gives it its unique character.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Portuguese wine

Portuguese wine is produced in Portugal, located in southwestern Europe, on the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal has a long history of winemaking, dating back to the Roman Empire and is known for its unique grape varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Albarinho and Tinta Roriz. The production of fortified wines, such as Port and Madeira, made Portugal famous, but the country is now a source of fantastic dry table wines. The wine regions of Portugal are divided into several sub-regions, each protected by an appellation for their unique terroir and grape varieties. Some of Portugal’s most famous wine regions include the Douro Valley, Dao, Alentejo, Lisboa and Vinho Verde. Portuguese wine is unique because it doesn’t rely on international varieties, such as Cabernet and Chardonnay, but on its own grapes — some only found in the country.

What are the most popular Portuguese wines?

Winemakers in Portugal produce a wide variety of wines. Still, some of the most popular include the fortified Port and Madeira, which are typically sweet and served as a dessert wine. Vinho Verde, made in Portugal’s humid north, is an easy to drink white wine and an affordable alternative that has become increasingly famous. Douro red wines, made in the same region as Port but in a dry style, are amongst the best in the country.

What are the different types of Portuguese wine?

Portugal produces various wines, including red, white, rosé, sparkling and fortified wines like Port and Madeira. Some of the most popular grape varieties used in Portuguese winemaking include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, and Alvarinho. The wine regions of Portugal vary in size and commercial significance, but they all offer distinct wine styles, often deliciously compatible with the country’s highly regional cuisine.

What are the best Portuguese wines?

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.
