Jorge Monteiro, ViniPortugal CEO, “Portuguese wines have been well-received by wine critics and that’s a very positive fact. This is an example to prove that Port wines and Portuguese table wines can benefit with all in one international promotion events. Sometimes Port wine may catch the consumer’s attention and other times could be the table wines. USA is the 4th export market for Portuguese wines and in 2012 has increased 8,4% in terms of value. Also, USA collects the main investment in the Portuguese wine international promotion.”
