Re: My trip to portugal

As pinhao is a very quiet town with TERRIBLE food, I ended up with a bottle of 92 Quinta de losa and sat in the pool. Pinhao is indeed very quiet. Regarding food, though, has Ponte Romana closed?

Re: Experience with BI Wines

I got my 2 cases of 12. Pied with debit card on their site. The bottles themselves are in mint condition. However 11 of the 24 had lost the front label (They were with the shipment, but dislodged). Quite disappointing. The cases cost £480 each. What compensation would you feel was in order to correc...

Re: Experience with BI Wines

Experience with BI Wines

Hello folks.

Any of you have experience with buying from www.biwine.com ? As I am intending to do a fairly decent size order and they only will accept bank transfer I am doing my due diligence.
