The Douro region isn’t just for port (although there’s plenty of that too) and there is evidence here that Portuguese winemaking actually dates back to 4000 B.C. That makes the Douro Valley one of the oldest winemaking regions in the world.

Now, Malbec lovers please gather around. This Portuguese blend is an anytime of year wine, with its bold body, upbeat spirit and a strong grip that will have you swooning. This is a wine of no intimidation but so much inspiration. Energized raspberries, crunchy minerals, the smell that comes off the lake as you watch a sunrise on the dock, freshly bloomed lush cherry blossoms and inky lavender notes. This wine will keep you warm when the snow is falling and will be a holding your hand as it melts.
Cold pressed blood oranges, zippy citrus with the minerality of dark purple geodes.

Wet skipping stones and pieces of damp driftwood that have washed up on the shore of a summer lake house.
