2021 Quatro Ventos – Portugal’s Top Value Red

Few Countries offer better value around the £10 a bottle mark than Portugal and, in my opinion, one of the very best at this price point is Quatro Ventos from the Douro valley. I remember this wine blowing me away at a Wines of Portugal tasting back in 2019 and then one week later my […]

Italy’s Best White Wine – Ludicrously Inexpensive!

Now here’s a seriously gorgeous Italian white that recently wowed the judges at the Decanter Magazine World Wine Awards.
