The DOC area for red and white wines in the Portuguese region of Lisboa used to be called just Torres until the famous Spanish winery owner Miguel Torres (*1941) successfully protested against it. The wines are mainly made from the indigenous varieties Arinto, Camarate Tinto, Fernão Pires, Jampal, Mortágua (Trincadeira Preta), Periquita (Castelão Francês), Rabo de Ovelha, Seara Nova, Tinta Miúda (Graciano) and Vital.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
