What Is Baga Wine?

Baga is a Vitis vinifera grape variety with small, thick-skinned purple berries. The word baga means ‘berry’, and the variety grows widely in the coastal Bairrada region of central Portugal. Today, innovation and experimentation in winemaking mean that Baga wines can be vinified into refreshing rosés, light and fruity reds, or even bold, tannic blockbusters.
