Portuguese Wines

In Past Events by ashepherdiwfs

Is your knowledge of Portuguese wines limited to some very fine port, Mateus Rosé and the occasional bottle of “house red” on holiday? Did you know that Portugal is home of the first Demarcated and Regulated wine region in the world – Douro Valley, now a UNESCO World Heritage site? The Portuguese were the first to bring European wines to the Americas and to Asia; in 2104 3 out of the top world wines were Portuguese; Jancis Robinson, in a 13 year tasting, ranked Portuguese red wines the highest; the 2015 best winery of the world is Portuguese.
