Portugal is a land of varying terrains that express themselves differently in the wines that are made. &quot;From Algarve beaches to the breathtaking mountains of the north, Portugal is a land of contrasts. From north to south, from east to west, from mountain to maritime vineyards, hot and dry or cool and green. &nbsp;Portuguese wines are soulful and expressive.&quot; &nbsp;They will pair the Deolinda rhythms with the wines of Portugal.</p></p> Tue, 18 Sep 2012 15:58:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/deolinda-city-winery-102503
