Fantastic wines at great prices. So much Portuguese wine to explore. Delivery is 4-5 days but definitely worth the wait.

I have now been dealing with Portugal vineyards for around two years and have had ten cases of wine from them. Every delivery has gone smoothly and I have been able to keep up to date with the progress of my delivery. The selection of wines they have is brilliant, if you love Portuguese wines as much as I do you will be spoiled for choice. I wish I had discovered them years ago.

Always an interesting and wide range of wines - types and price wise, not available in the Uk. Efficient and relatively inexpensive delivery service.

Food Pairing:
Slightly refreshed, expresses all the finesse and sophistication when combined with caramel desserts, dried fruits and spices, like caramel fondant with apple and ginger jelly, tatin tart, burnt cream and Cheeses of minimum intensity. Despite the age, the freshness remains. Extraordinary marriage with a refreshing tangerine parfait. The multiplicity of possible harmonies is amazing, having the consumer the pleasure to go in search of new flavours.
