Discussing the Dao Region of Portugal
Welcome to Exploring the Wine Glass.
I was invited to attend a luncheon in New Jersey hosted by the Dao region of Portugal and arranged by Allison Levine, owner of Please The Palate, a boutique agency specializing in marketing and event planning for the wine and spirits industry. In the heart of Portugal lies the Beira region, which is divided into three sections, the Beira Litoral (the coastal section, home to the Bairrada wine region), the Beira Alta (the upper mountainous region, which is where Dão wine comes from) and the Beira Baixa (the lower region). The key to understanding these wines lies in the geography of the region. Dão is surrounded by mountains, and the vineyards themselves are at altitudes ranging from 1200 to almost 3000 ft. The climate, coupled with the granitic soils, creates terrain perfect for making fine, elegant wines with good acid.
Join me as I learn more about the region and the wines of Dao from Eugenio Jardim, the US Ambassador for the Wines of Portugal and please remember to scroll down, and subscribe rate and review the podcast!
