Wine Of Portugal

With over 250 indigenous grape varieties, Portugal is an exciting country with wines deservedly on-trend in the UK and well worth trying. This year, we were pleased to be at Wines of Portugal, showcasing wines from the traditional Douro Valley and up-and-coming Alentejo, all shipped exclusively by Davy’s.

Quinta da Silveira has been owned by the same family for over 200 years. Winemaker Rodrigo Martins combines both modern and traditional methods to produce Douro DOC wines of the highest order. As a tribute to Alentejo’s cultural heritage, Pedro Ribeiro – winemaker and owner of Espaco Rural – ferments his wines in impermeable clay pots so both wine and skin remain in contact for a longer period. The resulting wines are mineral, fresh, elegant and above all, authentic.
