I use Portugalvineyards regularly and they never disappoint... to be able to order my favourite Portuguese wine at local prices is great. From placing an order to shipping is never more than a few days... the air freight option is the best value for €10 the latest order left Porto at 20:00 and arrived by 09:30 the following day.. happy days

Winemaking:

Quinta do Vesuvio is arguably the most magnificent estate in the Douro valley. Located in the beautiful and austere Port-growing region of the Upper Douro valley, its history dates back to the 16th Century. All of the grapes are hand-picked, with a careful selection being made. Vesuvio is one of the very few estates in the Douro where all of the wines are made using the traditional treading method in granite lagares, among the largest in the Douro valley, and offered exclusively as a single Quinta Vintage Port. Classic, monumental wines with fabulous rich fruit character. Probably one of the best vintages of the 20th Century. General declaration. After a rigorous selection of the best lots, 1.220 cases of the 2016 Vesuvio Vintage were released, less than 2,5% of the production of the estate in 2016.
