My third order First time good, second time average at best, third time lucky - excellent. Less than a week from order to receipt. Prices are keen always. If you like Portuguese wine, then I recommend Portugal Vineyards.

My first experience buying from portugalvineyards.com was quite good. Easy to use page, not bad service and delivery time to another side of EU also acceptable. What they could improve in there page is more easy way to find products with discount and also if they could find ways to reduce delivery price they would be wonderful. Anyway this shop is very good and for anyone who loves Portugal wines I definetly can recommend it.
