Portugal wine is the sixth vine-producing country in the world, and it comes in third in the production of Oloroso wines. One of this country's characteristics is that vines are cultivated at a certain height, in order to prevent damage by mildew, especially in the north.
Portuguese wine is produced in a climate that is ideal for the cultivation of the vines. In the northern part of the vine-growing region, it rains often, with the exception of the area of Alto Douro, where summers are long, luminous and torrid.
Portuguese wines are classified in the following way: taking into account the production, the systems for elaboration and the types of wines. In this way there is the Vinho Verde (green wine), young, fresh and acid, the mature wine, produced and aged by means of the current, normal system and finally, the rosé wine.
