Holy values, Batman! These inexpensive gems are some of our TOP summertime picks for red and white from Portugal! We love these dry wines and they’re chronically underrated.

2016 Grand’Arte Alvarinho, Lisboa
On Sale $9.99
This is a southern and warmer take on Alvarinho than is found in northern Portugal. It brings out the ripe perfumed character of the grape. Apricot and golden plums show both the fruit and the generous texture. Drink this wine starting from late 2017.

2016 Aplanta Red Blend, Alentejo
On Sale $9.99
A unique blend of 70% Aragonez, 30% Alicante Bouschet. Dark garnet tinged purple. On the nose, lush blueberry, plum and black cherry aromas but also complex with earth, slate and mineral. On the palate, a core of red cherries and blueberry is propped up by notes of fresh pipe tobacco, black pepper and dark spices. It’s incredibly plush and silky but the old world nature of it is what makes this very reasonable red such a home run.
