Discover Olly Smith's 50 Great Portuguese Wines
Olly Smith has revealed his 50 Great Portuguese Wines.
The Wine Writer and TV Personality, who won Journalist of the Year at the Portuguese Wine Awards in 2012, has spent the last year touring each of Portugal’s wine regions. His selection focuses on ‘Great Value,’ showcasing wines priced between £7 and £30 that offer an excellent quality to price ratio and have particular consumer appeal. His mission? To “demonstrate the flair and unique character of Portuguese winemaking, whilst focusing on the exceptional value for money that it can offer.”
Olly says: “Portuguese wines are a treasure trove of undiscovered gems. ‘Great Value’ is my theme for this year’s 50 Great and there’s never been a better time to explore the excitement of Portugal’s outstanding flavours across their vineyards. From the sandy beaches to the wild highlands, the skill of local winemakers devoted to their awesome range of local Portuguese grapes has to be tasted to be believed.”
