Got the taste for Portuguese wine whilst in Cascais this year (Planalto at an Indian, Vila Real from Lidl) so looked for an internet supplier. Ordered 24 mixed bottles which arrived in just under two weeks, most of which are now gone. So, have ordered more, using the "Members Selection" that were emailed to me (very useful, these emails). At current (awful) Euro exchange, the shipment premium is pretty much £1 per bottle if 24 purchased; taken with the wine prices, I think I'm getting better wines than most UK supermarket selections for at least £2 less.
