Simply the best. We first fell in love with Portugal, then the people, then the wines, Ports, and Firewater ?? It is so hard sometimes to find Portuguese wines in the supermarkets, so when we found Portugal Vineyards, we couldn’t believe it. We really do love Portuguese wine ?? we are never disappointed. However we came across 1 red wine, it wasn’t to our liking it had a slight fizz to it. They’re are a wide range of wines, Ports, to suit everyone’s taste and wallet. Their site is so easy to use, once you have selected and paid for your wines, you will be kept up to date with your order. You can easily trace your your wines, once they have been dispatched.
