Welcome to part one of Catavino’s Portuguese wine vocabulary. I started this quite awhile ago, but delayed publishing the article until it was perfect. I also wanted it searchable and a little more ordered, delaying it even further. But the time has come to finally present the first part of the Portuguese Grape Varietals. Below is the first installment in Portuguese pronunciation for wine terms: Grapes! I have tried to cover most grapes found in Portugal from the quirky to the common place. The voice is someone native to Lisbon, Portugal, a friend of a friend, who was happy to offer the correct pronunciation of the grapes. I also know there are probably a few “accent” typos due to the heavy use of accents in the Portuguese language, so if you find one, please let me know and I’ll get it fixed. I want to say I do have Regions, Wine terms, and styles also in the works, though I’m not sure when I’ll get to them.
Till soon, Ryan Opaz
