The Douro valley is a Unesco World Heritage Site and the oldest demarcated wine region in the world. It is also the home of that sweet, fortified deliciousness known as Port wine. The Minho green wine trail will take you through plenty of gorgeous wine estates as its mentioned in Portugal wine map. Try Quinta da Aveleda, known for its romantic ruin-filled gardens and vineyards, and Quinta de Soalheiro for its award-winning Alvarinho wines. The region of Alentejo is huge and rural, with vast plains of wheat, cork oaks and olives stretching into the distance. The hot Mediterranean climate yields many easy-drinking wines, especially reds.
Grapes in the Dão region grow at higher altitudes, protected by mountains on all sides for a temperate climate. If rich, structured wines with good acidity are what you are after, this is the place to find them. While on the Dão wine trail, stop in at Paço dos Cunhas de Santar or Quinta do Cabriz. Both vineyards house acclaimed restaurants where every drop of wine is given the gastronomical accompaniment it deserves. Greater Lisbon as you can see in Portugal wine map contains nine sub-regions for wine, each with its own characteristics, vines here are grown directly upon the sand, which looks strange and haphazard but yields great results – like the powerfully tannic reds blended from native Ramisco grapes.
After Port, Madeira wine would be the second most famous fortified wine from Portugal. It comes in a range of varieties, from sweet to dry, each as special as the next thanks to a unique wine-making process. The highest quality Madeira wines forgo the artificial heating process, instead leaving barrels in the sun to heat naturally – sometimes for as long as 20-100 years. Once called Ribatejo, Tejo is mostly flat, with significant agricultural holdings where lower quality quaffing wines are the norm. You will find that Tejo plants all kinds of grapes, from Alvarinho (the grape of Vinho Verde) to the full-bodied blackish Alicante Bouschet. Baga is the highly productive red grape of Beira, grown in Bairrada as its shown in Portugal wine map. In the past, the wines made with 100% Baga were known to be densely structured, blackberry-fruit driven wines with high acidity and a tar-like finish.
