This has to be my favorite value red at the moment! Showing a tremendous amount of polish for $11.99, this "crowd pleaser" brings plenty of versatility to the table. Medium bodied with dark fruit, it shows hints of earth and cacao. This will pair well with Mediterranean-inspired cuisine, and is a great example what the wines of Portugal have to offer.

When I think Douro, what usually comes to mind is big, brawny dark fruit, often times with some noticeable French oak clearly involved in the winemaking. Not so here. This bottling of Veedha is terrifically crisp and fresh, with a pretty balance of red and dark fruits. Medium-bodied, pure and focused, try this with any of your favorite dishes (anything off the grill in particular) as the weather warms and we get a little closer to summer.

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
