Looking Past The Port
We have championed wines from Portugal for quite a while now, in fact we’ve just won a Silver Award from Wine Searcher for our online Portuguese list. The quality of Portuguese wine making has never been higher, as winemakers perfect the flavours local grape varieties can give when grown on the ideal terroir. Whether you love Port, or prefer to just pass it, it’s a great time to taste these red and white wines from the Douro and Lisboa, as an introduction or reminder as to the great value they offer.
“I recommend it to those who love red Bordeaux but have been priced out of the market; or those who love the structure of claret, but also enjoy a wine with a wilder side.”
Victoria Moore, Daily Telegraph, on wine from Portugal.
