    Having Lived in Portugal several years and with a wife from Portugal, we have some good experience in this arena and our opinions are:

    BEST VERDE – ALVARINHO. Medium-High priced
    Palacio Da Brejoeira – Moncao region

    VERDE (All Tastes) – CASAL GARCIA (Cheap Price!) Tastes always the same. Good for a first experience of green wines. Better than Lancer’s but in the same category for the Portuguese native.

    GOOD QUALITY – GOOD PRICE:
    FALCOARIA -white- of Ribatejo region.
    SERRAS DE AZEITAO -white-(2005) Sado Region.
    MONTE VELHO – red (2006) Alentejo Region
    CABECA DE BURRO – red (2005) Douro Region.

    Be Aware that PORTO & MADEIRA wines are from Portugal Only.
    Because of the regions they come from, which is Porto and Madeira.

    Be aware of the FAKE wines such as the the so-called “Porto” from Australia.
    It would be the same as calling champagne to wine that does not come from the region of Champagne in France.
    That’s why all the other sparkling wines are just called sparkling wines made according to the “Champagne Method.”

    Boas Festas! Enjoy!

    You are nuts! The Anfora reminds of an over alcoholic Shiraz. The bitterness is the alcohol. This one of the first reviews I completely differ with you.

    I've been a fan of Chamine – I dont really remember the vintage, but I had it at a Rodizzo place in Belleville, NJ.

    loved the red wine for white wine drinkers…I’ve often asked purveyors to recommend a white wine that a red wine drinker would love and sadly alot either don’t know or their choices suck.
    Going through some back episodes and waiting for you to do a sober/drunken palate comparison show.
