Portuguese Diversity

After a visiting some wine-makers in Portugal in 2012, I became convinced that there was a market for Portuguese wines in the UK. At Weavers, we'd already fallen in love with the Terra D'Alter wines, and I know that some of our Wine Cub members agreed after we sent it out in one of the Wine club cases. There is still plenty more to be discovered when it comes to the wine of Portugal however, and the Ciconia wines show of the diversity of the wine industry in this amazing country.

Alentejo

The name 'Ciconia' is taken from a white stork that calls the woods and forests that surround the region of Alentejo home. It is here that the wines are made and it is a region that you will hear much more of in the future I think. The fertile soils mean that much of the local economy is based upon agriculture, with citrus fruits and olives being widely produced. It is also worth noting that the cork industry is huge in this part of Portugal, making the decision to put the Ciconia wines under screwcap controversial, but perhaps also telling as far as the future of wines with a cork closure is concerned.
