Few countries can claim as many distinctive and diverse wines as Portugal – with two of the world’s great fortified wines, Port and Madeira, the bold reds from the Douro, Dao, as well as Alentejo, and crisp crackling red and white Vinhos Verdes, Portugal embraces the entire spectrum. Richard Mayson’s comprehensive book takes an original approach to Portugal’s native grapes, the dozens of wine regions and hundreds of quality conscious producers who have refused to sacrifice vinous character in pursuit of global markets.
