What sets aside Portugal from all other wine producing regions is a vast array of exciting indigenous grape varieties that are planted nowhere else in the world. The country is still fighting to gain an international reputation for quality wine production and not just Port wine, and it is through the determination and talent of an increasing number of skilled winemakers that this is finally starting to happen. Originally best loved in the UK for selling us vast quantities of Mateus Rose, the country has since come an incredibly long way in building their reputation as serious wine producers. The diverse climates from the cooler North to the baking Algarve South result in a whole host of varied wine styles that merit further investigation.
