Not the wine of the week

Dear Editor,

I have been following Patrick Stuart’s weekly wine column in your newspaper over the last few months and have found it very informative with some interesting perspective on Portuguese wine.

I was however pleasantly surprised to see the change of tone last week when he gave some heavy criticism to what he considered to be a bad and overpriced wine.

As a regular reader of the Algarve Resident and other local publications I have to say that it is refreshing to see some critical opinion appearing on your pages.
