Think I have found my new favourite white wine. By winemaker David Baverstock (a fellow Aussie) who has his winery in Estremoz, Alentejo.

My bottle arrived in my Portuguese Wine Box from WoW Wines (an Expat Portugal partner at www.wowwines.eu).

We would love to compile a list of your favourite Portuguese wines that you are happy to share with our community. The list will be compiled and included in a blog post/guide.

What is your favourite Portuguese wine? Please include:

Our personal favorites (and we enjoy many Portuguese wines from all the growing areas) are from a small co-op in the Douro which we really enjoyed at the Quinta de Tourais in Cambres. A small band of very creative winemakers produce reds, whites, dessert wines (and ports - 20 and 30 year-olds). Fernando Jose Sampaio and Cardoso Coelho are key members. The packaging is artsy laser, every vintage and type has a bottle you want to save. Being somewhat 'boutique', the wine are reasonable, but not inexpensive: The payoff is on the palate. The co-op is too small for American distribution, but it is truly outstanding to stock up for special occasions in Portugal.

Hi Janet,

Love the fact that you are buying wines from a co-op. We buy all our wine as locally as possible, our adega in Fundão is excellent, such a variety and prices from ridiculously cheap to slightly over moderate 😉

Cheers, hic,

We have a plan to move from the US to PT this year. Among more pressing inquiries, I have been researching Portuguese Reds. We are New World, bold, fruit forward wine fans and I am told I should check out the wines from Alentejo. Thoughts?

@brittan We are truly fortunate to have best price access to Alentejo wines as I suspect that sadly, in a few years time, they will be 'discovered' by the world which will push the prices way up !  In the meantime the distribution of most is not that good + the actual volume of production is not so high which means when I go to the supermarket and buy half a dozen 'bottles to try' if I discover one I love then by the time I go back to get some more it's all gone.

So it's really a question of being here and enjoying what you can find, when you can find it.  I imagine not what you are used to in the US
