So far I have only bought white wines towards the lower end of the price range. The wines have been excellent, superb value for money, unusual and really interesting. Delivery takes a while, but is very efficient considering the distance from Portugal to the UK. Charges are very reasonable, too. All in all, I would strongly recommend this company.

Store and Serve Advices:
The wine should be stored in a fresh, dry and dark place, without temperature variations, and the bottle must remain up-right.

Food Pairing:
Slightly refreshed, expresses all the finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity. Despite the age, the freshness remains. Extraordinary marriage with a refreshing tangerine parfait. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is amazing, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
