The popularity of Portuguese wines is on the rise and for good reason. Portugal has many more grape varieties than you might initially imagine. For the red grape varieties, there are 17 types of grapes for wine-making and for the white grape there are 16 varieties. Some even say, 250 grape varieties can be found in Portugal. We won’t list them all however, they include Alvarhinho, Loureiro, Moscatel Graúdo (white) and Jaen, Moreto, Tinta Barroca (red), to name but a few.
