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.

Many favourites, but one range I really like (especially the sparklings, alvarinhos and rosé) is from Quinta de Carapeços ( https://quintadecarapecos.pt/en/home/ ) in the Vinho Verde region.

I like their reds a lot as well, but the reds from this region would not be to the taste of someone who likes the more fruity and jammy style of the New World and Alentejo.

The Palmela region is the region (in my opinion) with the best wines in Portugal best value for the money and the one i always buy. The land is very sandy (very good for the vines) and with hot summers and wind winters that come from Atlantic ocean.

The moscatel (sweet wine) there is to die for. 

 

The name of some wine houses there, like Bacalhoa, Ermelinda Freitas, Pegões and Comporta.

The wine house Ermelinda Freitas win many prizes at international wine competitions.

I just discovered a lovely red gratis my landlord which is a wine local to Porto. Not all wines in Porto are ports, by the way!
