Experience Douro Wines
Douro wines, made from the same grapes as Port, have experienced a renaissance in recent years, with modern equipment and techniques enhancing the quality.
In 1982 they received their own Denominacão de Origem Controlada (DOC) – Denomination of Origin – classification, over 200 years after Port. The combination of these factors has led to dynamism in wine production and Douro wines are now exported all over the world, often being referred to as the jewel in Portugal’s crown.
Food And Wine Matching
The fresh, fruity white wines with floral aromas are an excellent aperitif, and can be paired very successfully with seafood and grilled fresh fish, for which Portugal is justly famous. The white wines that have been aged in wood are ideal with roast fish or chicken. Young reds compliment fowl, mild salted fish such as bacalhau or pasta particularly well. The more full bodied cellar reds are perfect with game and other strong flavoured meat dishes.
