Wines of Portugal Promotion

INTRODUCING PORTUGAL WINE MONTH

Located in the Southwest corner of Europe, with just over 92,000 square kilometres, Portugal is a peaceful country of great natural beauty, offering visitors an unexpected quality and diversity of experiences. From the beaches of the Algarve to the breath-taking mountains of the north, Portugal is a land of contrasts. In between lie verdant floodplains, rolling plains and cork forests. The east is dry with a continental climate, the west is milder with an ocean-influence and is greener, especially the lush northwest.

Portugal as well as the certainty of finding a plentiful table dominated by a varied and creative cuisine. The richness and diversity of Portuguese wines has added a new and unexpected dimension. Food and wine are fundamental. The occasional modern restaurant apart, tradition rules: hearty portions of local dishes, meat, hams and sausages, seasonal game, an abundance of fish and seafood, the beloved salt cod (bacalhau), copious bread, rice and potatoes. Dessert is obligatory –1001 delightful combinations of egg yolks with sugar. Always present, and always different, depending on the dish or occasion, wine intensifies and helps discovering new flavours, making every meal a truly unforgettable moment.
 
Portugal’s winemakers have been conservative in one respect – keeping faith with their grapes. And no wonder! Portugal’s varieties are unique, with thrillingly different flavours. Yet quality-wise there has been no resting on traditional laurels. A quarter-century of investment, education, open-mindedness and flair has meant explosive change. Choice has multiplied too. Alongside the co-ops and large companies, a myriad of estates now make their own distinctive wines. Portugal truly offers a new dimension to the senses. We invite you to share unique moments and to take pleasure in your discovery.

Ramos Pinto Duas Quintas Tinto

"This is certainly one of the best regular Tintos from Ramos Pinto that I’ve had. Elegant and focused, it has enough tannin to provide some intensity and support for the fruit, and it has impeccable balance, pleasing flavors and a nice finish relative to its modest price." Mark Squires.
