Portuguese wines underrated. But in the best hotels and restaurants in Lisbon you will be surprised by the value you get
Portugal is highly underrated as a wine country. You can get excellent wines here. We are especially impressed by the espumantes that easily competes with the Spanish Cavas and the Vinho Verdes. Here are excellent reds as well, but this year whites are on the rise.
We have done a lot of research to find the best value for money to serve in our Hotel Lounge. But after seeing the list of the best wines in 2016 we better start all over again. 🙂

Portugal continues to produce extraordinary wines in many districts and in all styles. But this year, 2016, is marked by the rise of the whites. Among the 30 best wines, 8 of them are white: Two vinho verde Alvarinho and six from five different regions of the country (Douro, Dão, Bairrada, Lisbon and Alentejo), when last year there were only three whites, including two vinho verde Alvarinho. The rise of the white wines reduces the number of reds on the top 30 list from 20 in 2015 to 15 in 2016. The list is complete with 3 Porto, 2 Moscatel de Setúbal, 1 Madeira and 1 sparkling wine. Nine regions are represented on this podium of excellence. From Revista de Vinos
