Portugal

Stretching 350 miles north to south with significant variations in climate between coastal and inland regions, Portugal can produce an amazing array of wines.

Though the Iberian peninsula is dominated in terms of the size by Spain, when it comes to the diversity and quality of its wines, it more than holds its own.

The fascination of Portugal as a winegrowing region really lies in the work of dedicated, spirited individuals who combine the country's rich natural assets with great technique to produce characterful distinctive wines. Our range includes Julia Kemper, very much one of these powerful characters who, having resurrected her family's vineyards in the Douro, has managed to turn out a sequence of world class wines, in particular her very highly regarded Branco Reserva.

Portugal is a rich source and we remain open to being seduced by further outstanding producers. With this in mind we added Quintas do Homem, a booming family run business of around 19ha, with such delights as Loureiro, Arinto, Vinho Verde, Vinhao and a luscious Rosé.
