Touriga Franca

Ingredient for red wine and port.

The Touriga Franca is at home in the rugged beauty of the Portuguese Douro Valley. On the slate terraces over the river, the grapes were traditionally grown in mixed settings. Up to 80 different vine varieties shared a single parcel. Not even the vintners knew which variety they were dealing with. In the 1980s, Ramos Pinto undertook to identify the five best grape varieties for port wine production. One member of this selection was Touriga Franca. It shines with its deep red colour, intense aromas of blackberry, rose and wildflowers, its full-bodied structure and velvety tannins. Port wine was once dominant on the Douro. But for 15 years the dry red wines here have experienced an unprecedented boom. The Touriga Franca almost always plays a part. It is mostly blended with Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.
