Portugal

Wine came to Portugal via the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and most importantly the Romans. However, it was when England and Portugal signed the Methuen treaty during the Spanish War Of Succession that sales really took off. Favourable taxes meant that Portugeuse wines were affordable and the English soon took a liking to them, particularly those from the Douro valley. Many merchants sets themselves up at the mouth of the Douro river in Oporto and they soon discovered that fortifying their wines saved them from any taint during the voyage to England. 'Port' wine remains a huge export, but there are many other fascinating gems to seek out from regions such as Madeira, Vinho Verde, Dao and Alentejo. In addition many port firms have started making excellent table wines using tradition port grape varieties.
