FOOD cooked with love
Just like your mum would do
(if she was Portuguese).
the finest portuguese
Portugal is home to hundreds of native wine grapes, producing great tasting,
high quality wines.
It’s time you get to know its
secret wine treasures.
the heart of
"These days the neighborhoods south of the Thames — in particular, those roughly southeast of London Bridge — are among the capital’s most energetic."
this story begins
in a sunny
Our mother was born and raised in a farm in the Portuguese Midlands. There she took from her mother and aunts the best of the rich Portuguese tradition of cooking. There she learned that cooking was not serving, but a way of showing love and appreciation to one another.
She's now in her sixties, still cooking with passion and energy, which she puts into her cooking, and we believe, that when you taste mum's cooking you'll know what we are talking about when we say "it's made with love".
Red Wines That Make Cabernet
Look Like a Big Wimp
The Douro River winds treacherously through a rugged, mountainous section of northern Portugal before it dumps into the Atlantic Ocean in Porto. The Douro is famous for Port wine, but many Port producers are using their port grapes to make a dry regional red wine. The region is hot and dry and the vineyards produce incredibly concentrated, red wine grapes on their schist rock and clay soils.
Aromas of plum, violet, blackberry, cinnamon and blueberry lead into intensely bold fruit flavors with high tannin that can lend an almost charcoal-like texture.
Portugal’s Answer to
As unoaked wines, Arinto, Encruzado and Antão Vaz usually have quite a bit of phenolic bitterness which makes them zippy and tasting a lot like grapefruit pith. However, when they are oaked they become ethereal. The richness that oxidation and oak adds, contrasts with the obscene acidity, lemon, and honeycomb flavors, is incredible.
Expect lemon flavors with faint bitterness in the realm of grapefruit pith backed up by waxy honeycomb, peanut skin and creamy hazelnut.
The Endless Summer Wine
Vinho Verde is the boozy dry limeade you’ve always wished for on a hot day.
Zippy and often slightly spritzy with flavors of limeade, lemonade, gooseberry, apple blossom and yellow grapefruit. Great examples have a slightly clingy, chalky sensation on the palate and notes of honeycomb, Ruby Red grapefruit and lemon.
the portuguese weather too, if we could
Everytime the sun is out our garden in Nunhead is the best place
to spend time in the company of friends, or just a drink.
We'll be here with a cold jug of homemade lemonade or sangria.
