Minho

Portugal

Perhaps Europe's most misunderstood wine region (indeed, Vinho Verde is still thought by many to define a wine style, not the geographic region it is). But with more land under vine than any other defined region bar the Douro, Portugal is once again finding the Vinho Verde to be a champion of fascinating winemaking with considerable diversity.

The leading lights of the Minho are Soalheiro for Alvarinho, Quinta do Ameal for organic Loureiro, and Quinta da Raza for some of the region's finest Arinto-based whites.
