The viticultural Portugal produces dry still wines (white and red). Yet, the country is mainly known for its Porto (fortified wines). The Douro Valley is one of the oldest viticultural regions in Europe. With 40 000 hectares of vineyard - which are divided between the banks of the Douro- this valley distinguishes itself by a landscape of splendid and uncommon schist terraces. The Porto Vintage is produced in this unique place and is considered being the most noble. Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa,Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Cão are the 5 major varietals used in the making of the famous Porto Vintage.
