Portugal is probably most famously known for its fortified wines of Port and Madeira, meaning its production of dry whites and quality reds are usually forgotten. They shouldn’t be! Its wealth of native varieties and range of climates means no two wines are the same and range from the crisp refreshing whites of the Vinho Verde, to the Ports produced in the Douro region just next door. It is these indigenous Portuguese varieties like Touriga Nacional and Alvarinho which show great diversity and promise. With its dry wines still under the radar, these hidden gems are certainly worth shouting about.
