In Spain the three most requested regions are the Rioja and Ribera del Duero in the North, and the Priorat region to the South-West of Barcelona. We visit these regions separately or as one grand tour across the breadth of Northern Spain - and sometimes combine this with Portugal, Spain's neighbor to the west. Portugal is best known for its fortified Port and Madeira wines, but has recently begun to make a mark with its table wines from regions such as Bairrada and Alentejo . Portugal's steep terraced vines along the Douro Valley and the port caves in Oporto make for quite spectacular scenery.
