Quinta Do Noval  in the Douro valleyStill that poor country on the Atlantic edge of Europe, having been hampered by decades of isolation and dictatorship, Portugal is finally getting that wine thang right. Partly a question of marketing - now very successful - and partly one of self confidence and investment - definitely getting there, Portuguese wine is better and more available than ever. From the north to the south our oldest ally is discovering its native grape varieties and making intense, delightful wines with them. Plenty to reward exploration here.
