Portuguese Red Wine

Ládano Douro Red 2017′ is truly a unique wine made from micro producer Daniel Costa in the Douro Valley, Portugal. The wine is a blend of 15 different grape varieties which have been hand-picked in 20 kilo boxes. Fermented with indigenous yeasts and then into old French oak barrels for twelve months. Total bottles made was 4,800 in the 2017 vintage and we managed to convince Daniel to sell us 180 of them! The Douro valley red starts off with some earthy aromas and deep black fruits like blackberry, black cherry and plum. It is these flavours combined with subtle peppery undertones which give it balance and structure. Expect a long finish with velvety and well integrated tannins associated with freshness and ripe fruit. This wine will benefit from decanting or aeration. A bargain at £15.90! Pair with: Grilled lamb skewers and a potato salad.

This helps subscribers to discover new styles and varieties, which you wouldn’t normally come across or buy. Wine club members pay a selected amount into their wine club account every month. We don’t deliver any wine to them until they place an order for the specific wines they chose using their account balance. In short, the subscription product is for wine drinkers wanting to discover new wines and are happy for us to chose for them where the wine club is for those who know what they like and want to have control over which wines they receive. Both monthly subscriber and wine club members receive discounted prices on all orders.

  • We endeavour to source wines from small family-operated vineyards, who are either certified organic, bio-dynamic, or working towards this. All certified organic wines will be labelled as such, in our online store. Currently, 85% of the wines we sell are certified organic so there plenty to choose from. If you head to the menu on the website select Wine Method / Organic Wine and that will show you all the wine in our shop which is certified organic.

  • There are multiple options for delivery. The cheapest option is our 3 working day delivery service which is £4.95. DPD is our preferred delivery partner who will provide you with a live tracking link and delivery window once the item/s have been collected from our warehouse.
