Portugal’s winemakers have been equally conservative in one respect – keeping faith with their grapes. And no wonder! Portugal’s varieties are unique, wit trillingly different flavours. Yet quality-wise there has been no resting on traditional laurels. A quartercentury of investment, education, open-mindedness and flair has meant explosive change. Choise has multiplied too. Alongside coops and large companies, myriad estates now make their own distinctive wines.
Terroir is so diverse. From north to south, from east to west, from mountain to maritime vineyards, hot and dry or cool and green. In every style, from fizz to port, from crisp dry whites to elegant reds, in so many diverse ways, Portuguese wines are unique.
