More about this wine from Douro, Portugal
Winemaking is very much intertwined within the fabric of Douro region. There’s evidence that there’s been winemaking going on since the third century. This wine's region gets its name from the Douro river that runs through it. This part of Portugal is hot and dry, perfect for growing one of the country's most popular native red grapes, Touriga Nacional, which you'll find in this bottle! Touriga Nacional is a grape that grows in smaller quantities, making it all the more precious, so be sure to appreciate its presence here.

During the summer, it’s always great to have medium-bodied reds around that aren’t too heavy but still have a little weight to them, and this wine fits the bill. Its low tannins, fruit-forward style, and notable acidity make it the perfect wine for front porch sipping when the hot summer air is intoxicating.
