In the Fugas suggestion of "20 Sparkling wines for Christmas" 13 are from the Bairrada Region

20 sparkling wines to taste for Christmas. This is the suggestion Luis Lopes presents in the supplement of the Fugas magazine from last 26th. Among the twenty sparkling wines presented 13 are from the Bairrada region.
All the sparkling wines chosen have "a high level of quality". According to Luis Lopes these sparkling wines are "perfect for moments of celebration or to go with a meal". The "versatility of sparkling wines (white or rosé), when accompanying a meal, is amazing and they can be served at every moment from the beginning to the dessert."
The list of the Bairrada wines chosen can be accessed here.
