Portugal

The Portuguese wine industry has gone through some hard times. It survived the Oidium tuckeri (fungus that causes powdery mildew) in 1848 and later the devastating phylloxera infestation in 1868. The replanting began around 1883 with American vines since they were found to be resistant to the pest.

Portugal’s wine legislation was reformed when it joined the European Union in 1986. A two-tier system was implemented; the apex of Denominação de Origem Controlada (DOC)/Denominação de Origem Protegida (DOP) and Indicação Geográphica Protegida (IGP)/Vinho Regional, considered table wine.

In recent decades growers have rediscovered grapes of the past. In fact, the Instituto da Vinha e do Vinho (IVV) lists over 350 grape varieties, at least 250 of which are indigenous.

Portugal is currently the 5th largest wine producer in Europe and 11th in the world. The Douro, Lisboa and Alentejo regions account for over 50% of the country’s wine production.
