Wine from the Portuguese Azores means an Atlantic Ocean injection. The area has a mild climate. Wine has been produced in the Azores, an archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean about 1,400 kilometers west of Lisbon. But so little that you hardly ever see the wines from the Azores on the European mainland. They produce around 20,000 liters per year, which is about the annual harvest in the Azores. It is all white and much of it is fortified with alcohol. The wine is made from typical Portuguese grapes, such as Verdelho and Arinto. What is also still unknown, but certainly not unloved by the wine connoisseur, is quality because the Azores have a great climate for wine. The sea breeze ensures healthy vines that do not require chemical intervention. Moisture, sun and a big difference in temperature make the wines of the Azores unprecedentedly beautiful.
