Douro Valley

Wine Of The Week

I was pleasantly surprised to find this ‘Selected by Tesco’ Portuguese wine from the Douro Valley in my local Tesco Store.
In a few weeks I will be off to the Douro Valley region in Portugal for the first time, where I will be staying amongst the vineyards in my first European Vineyard Getaway, absolutely can’t wait!
So, in anticipation of my visit to this area I purchased this lovely bottle of wine. It’s undeniably reminiscent of the infamous port produced in the surrounding area with it’s sweet and rich flavour. I like the idea of enjoying this wine perhaps post Christmas, when the overindulgence of sweet port seems a little much, this is a lighter alternative but still very bold and rich in flavour.
I look forward to experiencing many more wines from this area in a few weeks time!
