All About Portuguese Wines

I have heard the clarion call for the wines of Portugal, those intriguing wines which seduce with their tantalizing aromas and flavors. It is my desire that many others feel the urge of that clarion call too. To that end, I have become an ardent advocate for Portuguese wines, to share all the excellence I have found in their wines.

As I have written numerous posts about the wines of Portugal, including Port, I felt it would be very helpful to my readers to compile those links in a single place. This post will be that repository, and as such will be constantly updated when I write another article about Portuguese wine, including Port. The posts will be listed in chronological order, from the oldest to newest. I have excluded several posts, generally those which are reviews of large tasting events which might also have a few reviews of Portuguese wines that were at the tasting. If seeking a review of a specific Portuguese wine, you can always search my blog in the usual way.

Hi Richard, I stumbled upon your blog and found it really interesting to read. I'm not a connoisseur of wine or food but like what I like. I just came back from a Portugal trip on the Douro River and enjoyed it immensely not having any expectation about Portugal or it's wine. However, I can say most of the wines I had were great (I drank more glasses than I would ever a home, because they didn't have reactions) and think importers are missing out by not bringing more in. I see one or two bottles at most in the stores.

Thanks for your comment Evelyn, and I'm sure your Douro trip was amazing. Hopefully, more Portuguese wines will end up on your local shop shelves in the near future.
