Excellent - great value, really nice wines and easy delivery. Website was simple to use too, just make sure you use the delivery bands wisely to keep the average cost per bottle down :)

Great website, with fantastic wine prices. I have converted all my friends to Portuguese wines. My wife is very pleased, the wine is delivered in cardboard - no plastic. IM Somerset

92 pts Robert Parker - Bright lemon colour. Excellent intensity on the nose, with fresh citrus and tropical fruit aromas, delicate orange blossom notes and a marked minerality. Elegant beginning that leads to a wine with great volume and texture. The palate offers lemony and mineral notes surrounded by a vibrant acidity. The finish is fresh, balanced and lingering.
