In the hills of Melgaço lies one of the finest Alvarinho estates of all – Quinta de Soalheiro. Having fully converted to organic practices in recent years, the estate has been steadily building a reputation for producing the finest Alvarinhos in northern Portugal.

When Jim first met with João and his son Luis he was impressed by their skilled winemaking and the purity, elegance and quality of the wines they produce. Their success since arrival on our shores has been phenomenal; and here's your chance to try them for yourself.

Get your shopping done early and reward yourself with some good-humoured, informal, quality wine time. You never know - you might discover your new favourite wine.
