Welcome, Federico.

I love Potugese whites myself. Especially the crisp, minerally ones. Can't remember my favorite one's name, though. :(

Federico, you are talking to the right people here. In my case, I assist in a wine store where the co-owner is from Portugal so a huge selection. In fact we have a Portal tasting on Thursday with the export director.
In my cellar, I usually feature CARM, Crasto, Portal, Encostas, Campolargo, Esperao, Vale d`Maria.

Welcome and look forward to your insights!

Bob, do you run unto one Manny Ferreira? He lives and works out of BC (was Vancouver, but he relocated to the Okanagan a few years back), and is a fairly prolific importer ofPortugese wines to Canada. You can tell by the name, he's also Portugese.

Re Portugese wines in general, we recently discovered a house called Fronteira. I recently purchased some for our cellar.

I like Tawny Ports and enjoyed a lighthearted effervescent rose' wine that Nancy Agasi introduced to us at a wine dinner in Raleigh a few years ago, the 2011 Muralhas de Moncao Rose', Vinho Verde, Portugal. I have to say the 2011 Cockburn vintage Porto is very nice but vintage ports are not something I typically buy--cost, optimum cellaring for decades, and I prefer the Tawny Ports anyway.
