RED WINE

Our list includes wines from most of the Portuguese regions.
Each region has some characteristics (such as altitude, soils, proximity to the sea) which makes them special and distinct.
You can choose from delicate and elegant wines from the Dão region to complex, warm and structured wines from the Algarve.

DOURO

After affirming itself through one of the most famous fortified wines of the world (Port wine), the Douro region produces wines of tremendous class. Typical grape varieties like Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz present a violet color with aromas of red fruits and rock rose.

BAIRRADA

The region is known for its deep colored tannic red wines. Aromas are fruity when young and more complex with ageing. The grape variety “Baga” results in wines with deep colour and a rich but lean, tannic, high-acid structure, with clear flavours of berries and black plums and hints of coffee, hay, tobacco and smoke. Though often astringent when young, Baga wines can age remarkably well, softening and gaining elegance and a herby, cedary, dried fruit complexity.

ALENTEJO

Dark ruby in colour with intense ripe red fruit aromas and velvety with a light astringency on the palate. They are well balanced, structured and acquire complexity with age. The grape variety “Alicante Bouschet”, brought from the South of France, has found the ideal “terroir” here and flourishes under these conditions.

ALGARVE

“Wine speaks to all the senses: the eyes behold the color, tone, and shade; the nose, the bouquet, the fingers and lips caress the cool crystal; the ears delight in the subtle swishing of the liquid; the tongue rejoices in the reward of a rich harvest.”
(Mary Lou Posch, wine lover)
