Entry criteria: producers and UK agents were invited to submit their latest-release Douro valley reds, including single-varietal or blended wines
It’s no secret that the Douro has been making excellent still red wines for years. But what is astonishing is the level of consistency that the region has managed to achieve in recent vintages – and this tasting, which featured wines from a wide range of those vintages, served to confirm this.
