Why the Portuguese Wines Remain as Popular as Ever Published on 18 Jun, 2012 by Keely Capel / Google+
Portuguese wine is the result of many traditions, which have been passed from generation to generation. The wine, which is produced in the country, is considered to be of a high quality and some of the best in the world. At the recent Brussels World Wine Competition, it was stated that Portugal is considered to be the country, which has progressed the most in the last 10 years.
The overall quality of the wine is far higher, and the results, which are being achieved produce an incredible wine. The president of the wine competition spoke to the local news agency Lusa, and stressed that it is an honor to be involved with such a prestigious event. This wine event underlines the incredible cultural characters of all the wines, which are produced.
This is the 19th wine event of its kind, and features 8,300 different wines from around the world. This number is an increase of over 10 percent more than the previous year. The whole event is incredibly important, and the numbers of wine that is entered can be a challenge. However, the experienced wine tasters, which are present at the event, are some of the best in their field.
There are several different factors, which are considered during the wine event, which include the way they are manufactured, and the incredible taste they produce. Only 25 percent of the wines that are entered will be awarded the prestigious best wine award. These are the most distinguished wines, and the ones that are considered to be the best in the world.
One of the wine critics who attended was Havaux, who voiced his opinion that the wines he had tasted were the best the world had ever produced in recent years. The critic’s want to ensure that the wines they recommend are worthy of the excellence sticker. In Havaux’s opinion, the awards, which they present, declare that the wine is excellent.
The award is recognition from a top panel of judges that the work carried out over the years has produced the excellent quality wines. There are 320 expert wine critics and professional tasters at the event to ensure that the best wines do not get missed. During their stay in Portugal, they will enjoy the local hospitality, and be made to feel comfortable.
The critics enjoy staying in Portugal as the wines, which are entered are of a high quality. Portugal is considered to be without a doubt, one of the best countries in Europe to produce quality wine. There are often lesser known wines to promote, which is an interesting part of the critics task. Often there are wines, which are entered into the competition, which are fantastic, but unheard of with consumers.
During the time the critics are in Portugal, they will also experience a trip to the wine producing region of Douro. This will enable the journalists that are present to experience another side of the wine making process. Drinking the wine is enjoyable; however, understanding how it is produced is essential.
