Tasting Notes

While the Douro Valley is best-known for Port, we're thrilled to discover this Pétillant Naturel (aka 'pét-nat') made from Pinot Noir. It has a delicate, pale rose color in the glass with lush flavors of strawberry.

Staff Pick Notes

I'm a big fan of everything I've tried from winemaker Tiago Sampaio. He's part of the new wave of young Portuguese winemakers breaking away from the country's storied Port-centric tradition and putting out creative, forward thinking table wines. Pushing the envelope a step further is this fun, super tasty Pétillant Naturel that I highly recommend taking home with you. While earning his PHD in oenology in Oregon, Tiago developed an affinity for Pinot Noir and planted some when he got home to Portugal. This Pet Nat is made from those plantings, and its just beautiful. Awash with dried strawberries, gleaming, delicate bubbles and a touch of flint, it simply belongs in everyone's refrigerator, bar, table, and glass. Delicious!

They also show their terroir quite clearly, and represent a great alternative to the modern fruit-driven...
