Used Portugalvineyards twice now, on both occasions my wine was delivered within two weeks. Great to have my favourite Portuguese wine at such a good price, delivered to my door.

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.

18,5 pts Revista de Vinhos - Deep ruby colour. Great aromatic complexity and freshness, with quite unique (but typical from the Abandonado vineyard) balsamic and tar flavours, liquorice and black berries. Pure refinement, with delicacy, minerality and an extraordinary purity of fruit. It feels the schist, the surrounding forest, the freshness of the altitude, in a pure expression of the vineyard’s nature. An exercise of pure elegance and class of one of the most iconic vineyards of the Douro and Portugal.
