Portugal may be small, but its viticultural scene spans a plethora of varieties and styles. Winemaking dates back to Roman times. In 1758, Portugal became home to one of the first ever designated wine appellations. Today, Portugal is known for sweet fortified wines from the Douro Valley, as well as its spritzy white wines from Vinho Verde. The country also produces a variety of earthy reds, refreshing whites, and crisp rosés from a slew of indigenous grapes.
