If you are a genuine wine nut, the chances are
you'll already have discovered that Portugal produces a fascinating
array of wine styles that, with the exception of Port, are generally
under-appreciated outside of Portugal. And without
wishing to knock the existing websites, it does seem that English language
resources on Portuguese wines are fairly scarce.
For a while now I have wanted to address
this deficiency, and this is the idea behind the launch
of the Portuguese wine club:
to provide a growing body of information about these interesting
wines, and a place for like-minded wine geeks to share their
information. If you have an interest in the wines of Portugalwhether
it is a lifelong obsession, or just pure curiosityyou are very
welcome to join in.
Starting a separate site dedicated to
Portugal's wines is definitely a labour of love. Unlike the wine
anorak, which has enough readers to support advertising, I don't
imagine that such a niche site will ever generate
a great deal of traffic. But it's a subject that fascinates me. We're
starting fairly small, but I hope to add material on a consistent
basis, and given sufficient interest it would be fun to have a
bulletin board too. Let me know what you think.
