Pour’s Wine Steward, Will recently visited Portugal, and one of the highlights of his trip was meeting winemaker Alvaro Castro (and his adorable yellow lab named Tobias!). Alvaro is a mischievously charming man of great generosity and humility, and the wines he makes in Portugal’s southern Dão are some of the region’s best. Beautiful with red fruit and earth and a nose that draws you in, this is a wine that pairs beautifully with food (charcuterie and hard cheeses!) or purely on its own.
