This 30 hectare estate overlooking the river Douro is one of the oldest and most prestigious of the Vinho Verde region. Whilst the brand was established in 1950 they have been producing wines on the estate since 1790. In 1957 one of the estate wines was chosen to be served to Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to Portugal. The wines are made using traditional techniques but using modern technology in a state of the art winery. The wines have won hundreds of awards and offer fantastic value at the easy drinking end of the wine list.

Herdade do Portocarro is a project that is based on a philosophy of production of finest wines in limited and exclusive quantities. These wines possess an intense and complex personality: they are tense and earthy, but also elegant and fresh. Located in the border between the beautiful Peninsula de Setubal and the intensely hot Alentejo plains, this 18 ha single vineyard has been planted on a hilltop facing South, 60 m above the river Sado. Both the rain’s draining and the sun exposure are excellent, it is surrounded by trees and benefits from the Atlantic Ocean’s cool influence.
The entry level wines are fun and easy to drink and the more expensive wines gain in complexity and finesse so there's something for everyone!
Osborne – Oporto| Vila Nova de Gaia
High quality Port from a historic family owned domaine
Thomas Osborne first arrived in Cadiz in 1772 as a merchant to start to sell local wines before setting up in El Puerto de Santa Maria. As the business grew, it expanded beyond Jerez with wineries in both Oporto and Rioja. Today the business is still run and managed by the Osborne family with a dedication and flair for high quality wines across the board. None more so than their Port wines.
