The world’s greatest wine region? If you’re thinking Bordeaux, Burgundy or Napa Valley, it may be time to think again.
Wines from Portugal’s Douro Valley claimed three of the top four places in Wine Spectator’s 2014 top 100 ranking — including the No. 1 spot awarded to Dow’s 2011 Vintage Port.
“It’s been famous for producing extraordinary ports for over 300 years and it’s got a unique beauty all its own,” says Paul Symington, whose family produces the top wine. “There are many superlatives that you can apply to the Douro. Many of us argue it’s the most beautiful wine-growing area in the world.”
