How A Nearly Extinct Portuguese Wine Grape Was Rescued By A Soccer Player

Just as a bird or animal species can come close to the brink of extinction, so too can wine grapes. Currently there are over 1300 vine varieties in the world, but most people are only familiar with the commonly produced ones, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, or Cabernet Sauvignon.

Lisboa wines: Peter Dean discovers a dozen wines to have on your radar

The Lisboa wine region has been compared to that of Chile and California in that it is a long, thin coastal zone with fresh wines made close to the cool Atlantic while more heavily-textured, deeper wines are made in the drier more protected inland areas. Picking a dozen of the top, most representative Lisboa wines our drinks editor Peter Dean tastes and rates them according to quality and value and assesses their potential for the on-trade.

Portugal’s Douro Superior Region Takes Its Time

Far away, in the remote eastern mountains and valleys of the Douro wine region, where Portugal meets Spain, exciting things are happening. New vineyards, new owners and new red wines are coming from an area that was relatively inaccessible only 30 years ago.

Save the Douro

Save the Douro

The problem of disappearing vineyard workers and old-vine produce disappearing into anodyne blends. A version of this article is published by the Financial Times.

The beautiful Douro Valley in northern Portugal is in a real pickle. It’s best known as the home of port, and nowadays an increasing proportion of the vines that are virtually the only crop there produce stunning table wine too.

In Portugal’s Vinho Verde, Wine Is Green in More Ways Than One

In Portugal’s Vinho Verde, Wine Is Green in More Ways Than One

When you look around Portugal’s Vinho Verde region, which is blanketed with emerald vineyards, it will seem obvious how the area got its name. But verde (Portuguese for green) refers to the style of wine—meant to be enjoyed soon after bottling—for which the region is best known: light, fresh, and quaffable, with just a hint of spritz to tease the tongue. It would be a shame to pigeonhole Vinho Verde, though, as just a place for picnic wines. Throughout the years, a focus on single-varietal bottlings such as Alvarinho, Loueiro, and other native grapes began to reveal a more complex side to Vinho Verde. Quinta de Santiago is among the wineries ushering in a renaissance.

How to drink in the beauty and traditions of the Douro Valley, Portugal's famous wine region

Centuries after it first started producing port wines, the Douro Valley has a new focus: a growing tourism scene. But even as visitors pour into this rolling landscape of dramatic hills and deep river valleys, the region’s agrarian heart stays true.
