If you gave me a big pot of gold to invest in one wine region anywhere on planet Earth - I’d pick Alentejo in Portugal. Once you taste this wine, you’ll realise why.

It’s a blend of three native Portuguese grapes (Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez and Touriga Nacional), plus a smidgeon of Syrah to give it an extra boost.

The wine is dark, rich, and smooth... everything you want in a big red. But because of Luís’ elevated vineyards there’s a lovely freshness to it as well - making it oh-so drinkable.

The value here is insane. Taste it and see why Portugal, and in especially Alentejo, is on the rise.

I don’t know why, but Luis kind of flew under the radar when I worked with him at Naked. It might be because we had larger, more established players in our Portuguese range. 

Or his really good stuff was just out of reach, price-wise. But with WineSpark’s business model, I realised his amazing wines could suddenly be affordable and attainable to normal people. And that’s exactly what it’s all about.

Locals would pair this with a stew of boiled pork and beef. You use the same water to cook the veg - cabbage, potatoes etc. It sounds dodgy but Luis says it works!
