My Favorite Portuguese Wines
Here you will find an ongoing list of my favorite Portuguese wines. Most of these wines are from the Douro River Valley of northern Portugal, but there are plenty of other regions of this great land I have yet to discover. (Alentejo, for example, is one region I’d like to explore.) Portugal is one of the regions of the world with an amazing selection of wines at reasonable prices. If you can get your hands on some of these wines, especially 2011 Vintage Port, consider yourself very lucky. I’ve enjoyed every single one of these wines and wouldn’t have posted about them unless I had enjoyed them. To learn more:
