To call it “table wine” sounds a bit wrong, they are some of Portugal’s best wines, made in the Douro Valley. But what else can you say? “Light Wines”? Not better. They grow these outstanding wines in a landscape that meanders all along the winding river. The slopes are so steep that it is hard to imagine that anyone at all had the idea to grow wine here.
Surrounded by the same spectacular scenery, the same steep slopes, they make the famous port wine. Who has not opened a vintage port at Christmas or had a glass with a stilton blue cheese? But what perhaps not many know is the absolutely wonderful old tawnies that can be found here. Probably even better than vintage port I think.
