You don't find much Portuguese wine in U.K. Supermarkets, but there used to be a nice red in Tesco, and I have enjoyed plenty on Hols in the Algarve. I found Portuguese Vineyards on the internet and noted the prices were rather good, so I thought I would give them a try. Ordered a case of various reds in November from just under 3 euros up to 5 and a bottle of LBV. Some of the cheaper ones weren't particularly good but most were quite drinkable, and the Messias LBV was really smooth. It is delivered by DHL quite quickly, and you can track it through Barcelona and Gatwick, then Exeter and here in the SW. It costs 14 euros to deliver a case, so factor in a quid a bottle for that! I ordered another case for Christmas, same very usable website ordering, same pretty prompt despatch and good replies to emails. Included another bottle of LBV and a couple of absolutely luscious Moscatel dessert wines, plus some really great but budget price whites. You can pay from 2 euros to 100's of euros, a fantastic range is on offer, and as I am ordering different wines each time, I am looking forward to forming my own opinion on a good number in due course. I would recommend these guys, and this is more enjoyable and educational than going to Asda....though I am not getting sniffy about yellow tail or wolfy blass...both very nice!

Huge range of wine. I've bought a few cases of vinho verde the average price per bottle being about 6 euros, and found them all to be very good (and good value!) No problems with delivery or damage (yet!) I've just ordered another case...
