Staying true to their grape varieties, Portuguese winegrowers cultivate vines and produce atypical wines. Vinho Verde in the north of the country produces refreshing white and red wines. The regions of Alentejo, Dão and Douro produce the best red wines in Portugal, such as Touriga Nacional. The Douro Valley wine route is an unmissable attraction for enthusiasts.
The "vinhos regional lisboa" wines from the Lisbon region are often very well made. As for white wines, the regions of Bairrada and Bucelas produce more than correct dry wines.
Port, a national specialty
This fortified wine is supple and opulent thanks to a modification during fermentation. A true icon of the country, port is a dessert wine that is also very appreciable as an aperitif. However, it is the French who consume the most in the world. You will therefore find many wine producers who also make port. The 6 main grape varieties used to make a Port are: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz also called Tempranillo, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Cao, Touriga Francesca and Tinta Amarela.
