Excellent communication from start to finish. The website is easy to navigate with very good recommendations and there is a wine to suit every taste and budget. If there is a wine out of stock you will be told and offered a replacement so you order will not be held up. The tracking system is a fantastic tool to keep an eye on where you reach order is. I have placed many orders with Portugal Vineyards and I look forward to enjoying many more. Keep up the great work.

First tried Portugalvineyards Two years ago after coming back off holiday from Portugal, having had the privilege to have tried some very nice wines. I looked for the same wines back in England only to find it was 'cheaper' to buy it from Portugalvineyards even with postage . Having never doing this sort of thing before I was a little apprehensive ordering at first but was soon put at rest when my first order arrived at my door. Never looked back since, so all I can say is buy with confidence. Bryn

96 pts Robert Parker - Deep color, very floral aroma, with lavender and rosemary in predominance and spice notes, full-bodied taste, rich and very elegant structure, in a magical balance between fruit and tannins, lasting at the end of dry and harmonious mouth. You never forget such a wine.

Winemaking:
Dow’s Vintage Ports are only produced in years of exceptional quality and represent only a very small part of the total company’s production in that year. On average only two or three times every ten years are the weather conditions sufficiently good to allow for the making of Dow’s Vintage Port. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Dow’s Vintage Ports have been landmark wines in virtually every great year, consistently setting the standards amongst all Port houses. Dow's Vintage Ports are drawn from the companies' finest vineyards; Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta de Senhora da Ribeira. Each property contributes to the Dow’s unique and distinctive style. This 2016 is a small production vintage with just 5.480 cases released to the market.
