Excellent on-line retailer with a very good selection of Portuguese wines. This was my first visit and on-line order. The wine was delivered 4 days ahead of schedule, undamaged -that is good. The price of the wine was very competitive on a par with what I would expect to pay in Portugal. Shipping costs inexpensive. As for the wine? perfect not corked. I will certainly return to purchase other Portuguese wines that my wife and I have grown to enjoy. muito obrigado.
