vineyards portugal

A goldmine of information on Portuguese grapes. A well-structured book that describes the Portuguese wine grapes. The book is informative, clear and structured in different sections, as well as some wine history. I like!

Lasse Karlström

It is invaluable for those who want to learn more about the grapes from Portugal, which are somewhat unusual in the wine world. Very interesting!

Lennart Smith

Fantastic grape portraits. Excellent language and beautiful illustrations. Structured presentations of the different grape varieties. The division of the most important and the “other” grapes makes the book suitable for all categories of readers. From nerd to beginner. Very good!
