In February, the wine monopoly in Sweden launched a wine from acclaimed winemaker Sandra Tavares in Portugal. We take that as an excuse to tell you about Sandra’s delicious wines since her wines are widely distributed both in Europe and in the US.

The new launch was Quinta de Chocapalha Cabernet Sauvignon 2018. It comes from Sandra’s parents’ wine estate outside Lisbon. Her parents saw the potential for cabernet sauvignon and planted the vines more than 30 years ago. Now it’s Sandra who makes the wine.

Sandra is better known for her Douro Valley wines, where she and her husband run Wine & Soul. They make mainly Douro wines but also some extraordinary port wines.

I strongly recommend all their wines. Look, for instance, for the white and red Manoella, the white Guru, the reds Pintas and Pintas Character and the Vintage Port 2018.
