Fine port at the Loulé Market

PortoBelo Road is a haven for fine port wine. Based in the centre isle at the indoor market in Loulé (Mercado de Loulé), Eddie Gould aims to bring some of the best tasting port wines under one roof.

Not only does he stock some of the biggest names, such as Sandeman, Ramos Pinto, Messias and Grahams, he has a wide variety of full-flavoured ports that are harder to find and are all reasonably priced.

The range is a full spectrum: Vintage, Colheita, Late Bottled Vintage, 10 year, 20 year, Special Reserve, early ports and rosé ports. There are full bottles, half bottles, boxed sets and miniature port. So this Christmas, PortoBelo Road can offer anything from a luxurious present to an enjoyable stocking filler.

Eddie will ensure that any special requests are catered for and if he doesn’t have what you want in stock, he will try and locate it for you.

Each Saturday throughout December, PortoBelo Road is giving a 10% discount to the first five customers carrying a copy of this week’s edition of the Algarve Resident. So go along and take advantage of this offer and see their selection of port wines for yourself.

PortoBelo Road is open every day except Monday.
