The fortified wines of Portugal have long been the country's calling card. Long-lived, deliciously rich and powerful, names such as Graham's, Taylor's, Quinta do Noval and Fonseca are etched on the consciousness of wine lovers all over the world.
There is, however, more to Portugal than Port. Luis Pato, Niepoort, Casa Ferreirinha and Palace Hotel Bussaco all make uniquely brilliant wines that deserve a place in every oenophile's cellar and are a must-try for the uninitiated. Yes, Portugal has Port but it also has experimentation, innovation and a long history of making superb dry reds and whites.
