We are of an age when we can live part of the year in the UK and part in Portugal. So the regional wines are important to us, we would miss them if it were anything other than all year round. Portugalvineyards provide us with a top quality service and a website to select, order and have deliverer to the UK, some fantastic produces. Prices when delivery to our door in Winchester are still pence cheaper than buying a table wine at the supermarket. However the qualities do not equate. We have served a selection of quiet moderately priced Reds from the Douro, Dao and Alentajo to friends and our cellar as they call it (a pile of DHL boxes in the garage) has become famous. Our advice read the news letter & tasting notes, pick something you find interesting and try it. We have never been disappointed. Peter

Went searching on the internet after holidaying in Portugal and being blown away by the quality and value of the local wines (Porto and Lisbon). I wanted to see if I could source similar wines at similar prices, and found Portugal Vineyards. I've bought from them twice now and found them excellent. Great range at great prices, plus prompt delivery. I'm enjoying buying mixed cases and finding what I like and what I'm less keen on, although I have to say the quality, even among the lowest priced bottles, is consistently good. Highly recommended.

96 pts Robert Parker - Very intense and vivid colour. The aroma shows great complexity, with plums and red fruit aromas, spicy notes of black and green pepper and elegant notes of the local Mediterranean bushes. Strong mineral character and smoked meat aromas. Very elegant in the palate with great freshness and firm structure with velvety tannins. It is subtle with intense fruit flavors and impressive acidity. Great persistence in the palate to last many years in bottle.
