We take very opportunity to introduce the most characteristic local wines during the battlefield tours. There are many good wineries that can be visited along the way, some open to the public and others privately-owned.
The oldest demarcated wine region in the world is the Douro region, which is easy to visit from Oporto.
The Alentejo region is home to full-bodied reds and can be visited on the way to the “Southern Corridor” battlefield sites.
Even along the Lines of Torres Vedras one can visit plenty of wineries, including several at Bucelas, home to the white wine that was so much appreciated by Wellington, that he helped popularize it in London, where it became known as “Portuguese Hock”, on Account of its similarity to German Rieslings from the Rhine.
