PORTUGAL (15 Dec 2016)

Sail across the Atlantic and discover the Western-most country of continental Europe. Home to 15 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Portugal has a rich and colourful culture, and its wines are decidedly just as interesting with names such as Maria Gomes, Fernao Pires, and Alicante Henri Bouschet! No kidding, those are actual varietal names!

The voyage begins with a glass of sparkling Maria Gomes, followed by an Alvarhino from a region up North known as Vinho Verde (literally translated green wine).

We then head slowly down south where the climate gets slightly warmer and the wines come into focus. Taste the native Touriga Nacional, and a red blend featuring primarily the Aragonez varietal, also known locally as Tinta Roriz, and more commonly as Tempranillo in the international wine scene. After navigating all those confusing yet intriguing names, we're sure you now need something stronger in alcohol! That's why this voyage ends with Portugal's signature a fortified wine, simply known as Port. Thank goodness for such a simple name, at last!
