This is an excellent example of a good quality wine for an excellent price. The aromas are of ripe red fruits with a good balance of oak which is the result of 3 months in oak barrels. It is a very well balanced and fresh medium bodied wine that has a long and pleasant finish.
Perfect for a mid week glass of wine with friends!
Vira Cabeças Red
Wonderfully balanced red with incredible aromas and depth. A wine that seduces the taste-buds with engaging aromatics, working in harmony and perfect balance with nature. It has the body and warmness of the Alentejo sun, with a combination of lush red fruit and a silky texture from start to finish. A wine that will stick in your mind… & for good reason!
Hand-picked and very precocious harvest on the 23th and of 24th August. Natural fermentation in a cement vat, part of the grapes were crushed and de-stemmed. Six weeks maceration. Aged in old oak cask and barrel for 21 months. Bottled without fining and filtering.
Matches well with a selection of cheeses and tomato based winter stews with warm spices. Lamb and slow cooked meat options. Aubergine, peppers and cumin dishes match really well with this wine. Be adventurous and try it with a bit of dark chocolate!
Vegan friendly, low sulfites and low intervention.
Single Old Vineyard field blend (about 8 different grape varieties).
Great presentation, great name & a great wine! We love Alentejo and this wine shows the character of the region so well. Lots of rich red fruit, hints of peppery spice & balanced acidity. A wine that you just want to keep on enjoying. A firm favourite at Glug!

Drink with grilled or slow cooked red meats, especially lamb. It also matches with game and high protein cheeses.
