MEET YOUR EXPERT
Bar Douro and The Wine Detective, Sarah Ahmed are on a mission to showcase Portugal’s dynamic wine scene, including lesser known grapes, regions, styles and producers, some of whom we are introducing to these shores for the first time. After all, with over 250 native grape varieties and such varied terroir, Portugal is home to a great diversity of truly unique, characterful wines waiting to be discovered.
“For over a decade, I have been spreading the word about Portuguese wines in The Wine Detective blog, leading wine magazines and key reference works, including The Oxford Companion to Wine and The World Atlas of Wine. Biodynamic pioneer Vasco Croft of Aphros has called me “the godmother of Portuguese wine,” which spirit I am thrilled to channel for Bar Douro’s Discovery Wine Boxes!“
