I have just received my order from Portugal Vineyards and I just wanted to say what fantastic service. My order only took 8 days from ordering to delivery, that's amazing considering the difficult times we're living in at the moment. The price of the wine is brilliant and the communication with Portugal Vineyards first class. I would definitely recommend this company and will most certainly be placing more orders in the future. Thank You Portugal Vineyards

I was after a specific wine I tasted in London but could not find again. Used their site to order and must say it's been a very easy pleasurable experience. Prices are very reasonable and 1 week from ordering to arriving is really not bad. I will use again.

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

Many continue to improve for 30 years and more. After a rigorous selection of the best lots, 2.450 cases of the 2016 Vintage were released, less than 5% of the production of the Cockburn's in 2016.
