How to Understand Portuguese Wines?

Roughly half of Portugal borders the Atlantic Ocean. Coastal regions are naturally influenced both climatically and dietarily by proximity to the ocean. It’s no wonder Portugal has a multitude of white and sparkling wines from indigenous grape varieties that are ideal matches with fish and seafood. Coastal reds from Tejo and Bairrada show great natural acidity while, warmer and dryer inland regions like Alentejo produce ripe, more approachable styles of red wines that pair well with slow roasted meat and hearty vegetable dishes. The mountainous Douro region benefits from elevation with long ripening seasons that produce the most ageable Portuguese red wines and Portugal’s famous Port wine. Fine Artisanal Wines stocks wines from all over Portugal ideal with every dining experience from light seafood courses to hearty meat dishes.
