Portugal wines hold the sixth place as a wine-producing country in the world, and it is the third in the production of Oloroso wines. A distinctive feature of this country is that vines are cultivated at a certain height, so as to reduce the risk of mildew, especially in the north.
Portuguese wine is produced in a climate that is ideal for vine-growing. It often rains in the northern part of the vine-growing region, except in the area of Alto Douro, where summers are long, luminous and extremely hot.
Portuguese wines are classified considering three different aspects: the production process, the systems for elaboration and the types of wines. Thus, we can find the Vinho Verde (green wine), which is a young, fresh and acid wine, the mature wine, produced and aged by making use of the current, regular system and finally, the rosé wine.
