João Tavares de Pina,

Thank you for the information and invite to your site. It looks like a work in progress. Let me know when the English side is up and running. Would love to visit and photograph the wine scene in Portugal. Have been enjoying ports for the last 20 years! Keep in touch.

I'll be sending my memories through my blog, each day... people I meet, places I go, food and wine, etc. It will be an internet living journal. www.wine-blog.org

I'm coming to visit with my Portuguese client, Enoforum Wines (Alentejo). They are hosting me for 10 days. We are also going to be participating in the European Wine Bloggers Conference this coming weekend... God... I can hardly believe it's this weekend. Are you attending the Conference? If yes, then I'll see you there.

Joao, thank you very much for the information. I will keep this in my file as I would like to do a story about the Portuguese wine market for my website/blog in the near future. I have always enjoyed the various forms of Port, especially the 10+ year Tawny. I have not had other wines from your region yet and want to give it a try. I will be in touch.

Hi Joao: Do you have any samples that you are able to distribute for tasting? If so, please let me know and I'll write up a review. Thanks so much, Steve

Dar João,

Thanks for all of your information. I'll take it with me to Portugal. I'm leaving this Wednesday, October 28, for 10 days. I'll also look at your Website.

Greetings João,

The wines of Portugal have yet to achieve the status they deserve. While I have tasted quite a few, limited availability in the US makes it difficult to really sample enough to develop an educated opinion. The Dao is certainly one of the more exciting wine regions we are watching as the few we have tasted were something to be excited about.

Hi João, thank you very much for making contact. I know that Portugal has a lot to offer in terms of wines, but I feel a bit sheepish that my knowledge in this regard is limited. It is not easy to find wines from your country in Greece. I will certainly start looking harder. I have enjoyed quite a few great bottles while being abroad, and like Greek wines, there seems to be a fantastic value for money ratio. This on its own is a fact that holds true for very few wine producing countries nowadays.

Bom Dia João, Thanks for the information. I really hope to get to Portugal someday soon and see for myself.

Thanks for sharing about wines of Portugal. I have tasted a red Dao a few months ago. That one was a rich meaty red wine.

Thank you, Joao. I will search for it here in California and try it.

I have enjoyed some Portuges wine, but there is not a lot in New York, yet. I recognize it is one of the great values at the moment, weak dollar aside, and if I had some to sell, I think I could do well...

Hi João,

I spent a great time in Portugal, specially in Lisbon and Porto. I visited some wineries and enjoyed the wines from Douro Valley. Portuguese wine was one of the reasons for my visit to Portugal and will be a reason to come back.

Hi João

Good to hear from you. You're so right, there are some truly great wines in the area.

I'm based in London so let me know if you'd like to catch up next time you're in town - maybe let me know if we can help you achieve any of your goals in the UK. It's rare that I get chance to work with small production exciting wines and I'd love to do some one off projects that I can really get my teeth into.

Have a look at our www.cubecom.co.uk site and let me know.

Thank you! So interesting how something of such simple satisfaction can actually be quite complex!

I will try it... Everyone could use a little charm in their life!

I have actually spent some time in Portugal a while back, and am very enthusiastic about Portuguese wines, particularly with respect to the wealth of varietals that have yet to migrate beyond Portugal's borders. I was in Portugal before I became involved in the wine industry, although I did explore the Douro Valley by train. I also became a staunch believer in the simple, white Vinho Verdes I drank whenever I had the chance.

Hello Joao, Thanks for the information you have provided in the near future i am planning to import premium quality ports from portugal, maybe we can do some joint venture together. Currently only new world wines and wines from france are being imported to India.

I am currently entering the European market with my wines in Poland and Germany.

Portugal is high on my list of places to visit and to enjoy wines. The Dao would be one of my first stops!

In general, Americans are not very well educated about world wines - perhaps we can change through the electronic fora. Thanks for the notes and the ideas. Please visit my blog sometime www.wineramble.com

Thank you greatly for your suggestion! That is quite a mouthful! Needless to say, I will take the opportunity to taste for myself!

Do you have a distributor in the San Francisco Bay Area (Northern California, USA)? I like the wines from Dao, but have not tasted any with any significant bottle age. That would be interesting--to see how they evolve with age. I am a restaurant Wine Director and Sommelier, so if you have a distributor in my area, I would be happy to have them come in to the restaurant and taste the wines for consideration for our wine list.
