Wine nerds. Food lovers. World travelers.

Why Portuguese wines? We live and work here and are extremely passionate about the wines of this country. Due to quirks of the past, Portugal’s entry into the low intervention winemaking sphere (and natural wine movement) is more recent than some other countries. The amount of ground that has been covered in so little time is incredibly impressive, and now wine fans throughout the world are able to taste a terroir of distinction. Portuguese people have always known how extraordinary their wines are and now the winemakers are sharing this with the world.

At our wine bar, Black Sheep, we have had so many international visitors who asked us "where can I buy natural wine near me" and this planted the seed that would eventually become RPW. There are many sites where a person can buy natural wine online, but no one is as obsessive about natural and organic wine from Portugal as us!

Real Portuguese Wine is about the wine, and about the people who make it. We take great pleasure in having personal relationships with all of the producers we sell, and we chose each wine through rigorous and repeated tasting. This community of winemakers and the wines they produce is what inspires us, and we hope to spread that inspiration far and wide. Welcome to Portugal, welcome to this unique wine terroir by the ocean, and welcome to Real Portuguese Wine.
