Took a punt and ordered a mixed case of the cheaper wines, 6 fair to decent bottles and a couple of very nice ones and 3 bottles of plonk and lastly 1 bottle of red wine vinegar(at least thats what it tasted like). The parcel came within about a week of o
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!
Very good selection and fast response, delivered in short time and in good packaging, received all in good shape. Will definitely order again!
