Portuguese Douro White Wine: all in the Terroir

Portuguese Douro White Wine: all in the Terroir | Wine Liquid Lisbon | Scoop.it
Winemakers from Portugal’s Douro Valley are producing crisp-edged whites in a land known for its fortified reds.
Mary H Goudie's insight:

White Ports are special. A recent tour guest just fresh from Porto managed to buy an even better bottle of the white stuff down here in Lisbon. Just a case of searching out the best & knowing where to get it. I tried a few white Douros at the Adegga Summer wine market but admit to liking the Bucelas whites such as those from http://www.quintadamurta.pt/ but I will give the Douros a going over at the Winter Wine Market this December - I will keep you posted.

Dress your Winechap in Fav Red

Dress your Winechap in Fav Red | Wine Liquid Lisbon | Scoop.it

Infamously erudite, meticulously attired, vinously virulent and ever so well connected... London's Tom Harrow (of Winechap fame) is en route to the Douro valley in northern Portugal.

 

Fortified, fermented and foot trodden, Tom will distil his own impressions of the world's greatest man enhanced landscape... step aside Joseph James Forrester, here comes the new 'Red Baron'....

Mary H Goudie's insight:

I just know you all adron your ladies maid in your best diamonds while she serves you, so why not dress your Winechap in the color of your favorite Touriga National or Burgundy while he pours.
