About

Not as dramatically rugged as the northern wine regions, the Central-Southern wine regions of Portugal show us clearly the spectacular contrast between the Coast and the Interior. While much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire, the southern cities and villages are stamped with Roman and Moorish architecture. The wines seem to mirror the endless vistas, cool beaches, and toasty inland rolling hills with an intriguing salinity found on the Coastal wines and supple juiciness and concentration of fruit in the Interior. There’s much to be explored and over 250 native grapes to be discovered and enjoyed.

This is the second of a two-part virtual seminar and tasting series with Eugenio Jardim, US Ambassador, Wines of Portugal. The first part is on May 7. Please register.
