Portuguese wine is known for its quality but also its diversity, both of its wines and grape varieties to produce them. Today there are more than 250 grape varieties which are native and found across the 14 wine regions of Portugal. Furthermore, in addition to the 14 wine regions, there are also 31 denomination of origin (DO). From the north to the south of the country, one can find vineyards and wine culture, with each region presenting its own characteristics in terms of the soil, climate, grape varieties and traditions. 

Known for its traditionalism, Portugal is today the 11th wine producer in the world, representing on average 3% of all the world's production. 

Portugal is known for its fortified sweet wine, Port wine, but also for its Madeira and Green wines. However the production of red and white wines are also increasing its reputation as a world wine producer at an international level. Today Portugal's Douro and Alentejo regions are now well known as well as other upcoming wine regions such as the Vinho Verde, Dão, Bairrada and Lisbon regions which are now making leeway in the international markets. The Lisbon region is also gaining popularity and being more sought after.
