By region, Port wine was the most exported, between January and September, but the Dão region had the highest percentage growth (22.49%).
“Although with some falls during these months, much due to the context of war that led to the lack of raw material, jeopardising production and some constraints in distribution, in total this period, exports show a positive result for Portuguese wines,” noted, quoted in the same note, the president of ViniPortugal, Frederico Falcão.
