Douro is a Portuguese wine region centered around the Douro River in the Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro region. It is located some distance upstream from Porto, sheltered by mountain ranges from coastal influence. The region has Portugal's highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). While the region is associated primarily with Port wine production, the Douro produces just as much non-fortified wines typically referred to as "Douro wines" as it does fortified wine.
Dão is a Portuguese wine region situated in the Região Demarcada do Dão established in 1908 and is located in the central area of Northern Portugal. The region became a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC) appellation in 1990. It is one of the oldest established wine regions in Portugal. Dão wine is produced in a mountainous region with a temperate climate, and it is the origin of the Touriga Nacional vine that is the principal component of Port wine.
Bairrada is a Portuguese wine region located in the Beiras region. The region has Portugal's highest wine classification as a Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC). It is located close to the Atlantic which ocean currents have a moderating affect on the climate. The region is bordered to the north by the Lafões IPR and to the east by the Dão DOC. The region is known for its deep colored tannic red wines that often have bell pepper and black currant flavors as well its emerging rosé production.
Lisboa, until 2009 named Estremadura, is a Portuguese wine region classified as a Vinho Regional (VR). While the Beiras and Alentejo VRs are largest geographically, the Lisboa region is Portugal's largest producer of wine by volume. The region stretches from Lisbon along the Atlantic coast to the Bairrada DOC.
Península de Setúbal
The Península de Setúbal region is located in Portugal’s western coast line, south of Lisbon. Its climate is characterized by a mixture of subtropical and Mediterranean, and the soils are clayey, limestone and sandy giving origin to great wines. Reds are full bodied, of an intense colour and a full aroma, with notes of dried fruits and spices. Whites can be distinguished by their straw colour, are smooth and warm in the mouth and with fruity aromas.
Alentejo is Portuguese wine region located in the Alentejo region of the country. The entire region is entitled to use the Vinho Regional designation Alentejano VR, while some areas are also classified at the higher Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC) level under the designation Alentejo DOC. Located in the southern half of Portugal, the Alentejo region covers about a third of the country and is sparsely populated. The region is noted for its vast cork production but has in recent years garnered attention for its table wine production.
