Portugal Please: Wow. - by Chris Osburn

Vinho verde dosłownie oznacza zielone wino. Jest to nazwa regionu winiarskiego na północy Portugalii oraz wytwarzanego w nim winogronowego trunku. Określenie vinho verde nie ma oczywiście związku z kolorem alkoholu, ale z jego świeżością i młodością. To portugalskie wino butelkuje się bowiem wkrótce po zbiorach i pije jako bardzo młode (9-18 miesięcy). W celu zachowania świeżości i kwasowości stosuje się nawet zabiegi zatrzymujące proces fermentacji.

Minho Region, Portugal, on Fodor's 2017 Go List, is known for its crisp, slightly effervescent wines along with lush green landscape and historic towns.

So underrated, but wines from Portugal are definitely worth it - via Derby Telegraph 31.05.2015 | Portugal, pleasingly, and, in my opinion, deservedly, topped the chart of underrated wine producing nations. Certainly I, without hesitation, put my cross in the Portuguese box, because it's a country that boasts a hugely diverse range of grape varieties and wine styles but it isn't, as yet, on the radar of most UK wine drinkers. #portugal #travel #douro #wine

RECENTLY, members of the UK wine trade, myself included, were asked to nominate the wine producing countries/regions they considered the most under and overrated.
