Nevertheless, the winemakers also rely on French grape varieties, which make it easier to meet the international wine taste. A field of tension from which wine lovers can only benefit.

Portuguese viticulture experienced a decisive impulse in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Cistercians founded numerous monasteries in the country and brought their wine understanding to Portugal.

Vinho Verde – The Green Garden of Eden

One of the most important wines in Portugal, Vinho Verde, comes from the north of the country. The “green” is available in a red and green version. The more well-known one is the white one and is almost a ‘national drink’ in Portugal wine country. It is a light, carbonated fresh wine with only 8.5 to 10.5% vol, which is the perfect companion for a freshly caught fish in one of the beautiful restaurants on the coast and due to its lightness, the wine can be drunk with lunch.

The wine terraces are based on the slate soil, which stores the water so that the vines survive the long summer drought well. Red grapes are mainly grown here: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca, Tinta Roriz. Little is known that only half of these grape varieties are used for the production of port wine and the other 50% are vinified as dry still wines.

Terras de Cister- Sparkling and Elegant

South of the Douro is the small but fine wine region Terras de Cister. The word ‘Cister’ is derived from the Cistercians, who were the first to grow wine here. The terrain has its climate with surprisingly cool nights. This makes maturity a little more difficult, but wine lovers are rewarded with very elegant and complex wines. The good acidity of the wines also makes them excellent base wines for sparkling wines. The DOP Távora-Varosa not only offers red and white wines, but also one of the best sparkling wines in the country.
