A huge range of wines at prices that at any level represent exceptional value for money. Service and delivery are excellent, and the administrative processes couldn't be simpler. Being able to track your order (via DHL Europe) means you always know where

93 pts Robert Parker - 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.
