Premium Portugal focuses on distributing wines from a number of Portuguese vineyards that produce exceptional wines. Portuguese vineyards rely on around 250 indigenous varieties, which are most often used to produce so-called blended wines. This collection of unique varieties allows winemakers to respect tradition or to experiment intuitively with these varieties. The result is modern wines in all styles.
Most often, Portuguese wines are mentioned with the Duoro and Madeira regions. The Duoro Valley area is one of the first wine regions in the world with a rich history, as evidenced by its inclusion in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2001.
In the Bairrada region, the Bagu variety produces great sparkling and still wines. The Alvarinho variety produces excellent young wines (Vinho Verde). The Alentejo produces excellent white wines from the Antao Vaz and Arinto varieties as well as red wines from the Alicante Bouschet or Tourigy Nacional varieties. With a similar area to that of Burgundy, the Lisbon region is a source for delicate and refined wines that excel in Mediterranean cuisine.
