Some years ago, I often bought B-i-B wines, since I think they are usually good and reasonably priced. And you can always pull a glass without drinking the whole bottle. Now that I’ve got a vacuum pump, the problem is not that big, and also, I wish to try many different wines, so now a days I rarely bue B-i-B.

Friday, we invited a group of young people for dinner and this Portuguese daily wine from Setúbal was a good choice.

It is a dark red wine, with scents of red berries and cloves, pleasant tannins and medium finish. The wine was poured on carafes and enjoyed with our Danish version of the Portuguese casserole, cozido made with both beef, pork and chicken, and for that dish the wine was very nice.
