Uncorked: Portuguese wine influenced by other countries
The formation of the European Union had a significant impact on Portuguese winemakers.
With the opportunity to examine wine cultures outside of Portugal, winemakers were able to further their own skills. Traditional winemaking methods were refined, technological advancements introduced and the easing of restrictions allowed for the liberation of creative freedoms for winemakers.
The result was a historic stylistic shift that continues to influence Portuguese winemakers.
