Profile of Portuguese Wine Regions

Portugal is a supremely interesting destination for wine lovers and its principal wine regions of the Douro Valley and the Alentejo offer evocative landscapes, premium wines and genuinely friendly hospitality at the wine estates. Read on to learn more about these fascinating wine regions.

North Portugal

  • Douro Valley

    At first glance, little has changed in the magnificent Douro, a wine region bathed in history and grandeur. The Douro river winds its twisty path towards central Spain as it did centuries before, over 900km of majestic landscape that, even in the 21st century, appears wild and rugged

Central Portugal

  • Alentejo

    Alentejo traditionally one of the poorest areas in Europe, the south of Portugal is now one of the richest in local colour.

  • Dao

    For many years the Dão was associated with highly tannic, fairly ordinary reds, but recently some very handsome reds and ever-improving whites

  • Setubal Peninsula

    The Setúbal Peninsula wine region in Portugal is thought to be the birthplace of the first grapevine in the Iberian Peninsula around 4000 years ago
