The spectacular Douro valley is one of the world’s most breathtaking vineyard areas.

The Douro’s origins are in Spain (known there as the ‘Duero’) from where it carves its way through Portugal before finally dispersing into the Atlantic Ocean at Oporto.The vine spreads like a rash over 165 kilometres of its slopes, which are sheer enough to make working on them a fatally dangerous experience. This is why a tasting at any one of the hundreds of Quintas is often interrupted by the thunderous echos of dynamite as men try to blast out rock from the hills, paving the way for more workable terraced vineyards.

The prime area of the world’s oldest demarcated wine region (its limits were set in 1756) is known as the Upper Douro, an area east of one the tributaries – the Río Torto. Rainfall is at its lowest and the sun at its strongest here, where the harvest brings in Port’s thickest and sweetest of local grape varieties (these include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz,Touriga Francesca and Tinta Barroca). This is the birth place of Vintage Port, a staggeringly dense fortified wine only released in the best years when Port houses have enough grapes of high quality to pick from their many vineyards or ‘Quintas’. The area is dominated by the big port houses such as Dow’s, Warre’s, Graham’s, Taylor’s, Fonseca and Croft, whose flagship wines are these vintage bottlings.

Port Producers

Port became very popular in England after the Methuen Treaty of 1703, when merchants were permitted to import it at a low duty, while war with France deprived English wine drinkers of French wine. As a result of the British involvement in the Portuguese wine trade there are many identifiable household names when it comes to Port producers or "shippers". Company’s like Taylor’s, Dow’s, Graham’s and Cockburn’s are instantly recognisable but over the years Portuguese, as well as Dutch and German owned shippers have also become prevalent in the Port industry.

Port Appellations

Less about areas of demarcation (all Port comes from the Douro Valley, in the North of Portugal) and much more about stylistic differences, there are many different kinds of Port. Usually deep, often sweet and always strong, there’s so much to discover – from vintage to tawnies, LBVs to rubies, crusted, white and colheitas, the list goes on and on.

Grape Varieties of Port

Although around forty grape varieties can be used to make Port, most modern vineyards are made up of a selection of five or six top red grape types now generally considered to produce the finest wines. Some other varieties may be added in smaller proportions where dictated by specific growing conditions. The most well-known varietals include Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tinta Roriz,  Tinta Barroca and Tinta Cão (or Tinto Cão).
