Enjoy a whole new level of wine drinking without spending a penny more than you're used to. Sounds too good to be true but you can with PV. Every bottle I tried so far costing £6+ has effectively taken me into £10+ per bottle territory, relative to standard UK prices. The wines are removed from that boring generic taste profile you get with most of UK supermarket wines while the price you pay for them remains very reasonable. Unbeatable VFM.

Excellent service really prompt delivery, to Ireland. Would highly recommend this company. Excellent wines and olive oils along with great value. Shipping costs are also good value. I am so impressed with Portugalvineyards I am about to place another orde

Winemaking:
The oldest process in preparing the sparkling wine was not the Classic Method, but the Rural Method or the Old Method (in direct translation from the French). The reason is related to the existence of a stopper – the cork stopper – which is produced from the cork tree that exists only in the Mediterranean climate. This Old Method uses only one fermentation and not two, as in the Classic one. The grapes for its preparation must have sugar content as a white wine and not as a sparkling, because it has NO sugar addition in their development process. All the used sugar in the process is natural, was completely produced by the vine. Initially, the must is fermented in stainless steel vats making the end of the fermentation in the bottle, in order to create gas with a pressure equivalent to that of the Classic Method. The final wine presents the fermentation flavors, which were entrapped.
