Where can I find this up-and-coming wine region?
Portugal is Europe's westernmost country. This former maritime power is only 600 kilometers long and 200 kilometers wide, about the size of the US state of Indiana. Portugal may be a small country, but its population of about 10 million sure is thirsty. Year after year, Portugal is consistently one of the world's highest per capita wine-drinking countries. Locals drink an average of 43 liters of wine per person annually. Picture each and every person in the country drinking over a bottle per week! (I know what you are thinking: time to move Portugal). It's no wonder per capita wine consumption is so high: Portuguese wine is just that good.
