Welcome to The Exceptional Wine Company . . . so named because we believe that both our wines and our aim are exceptional reasons for starting our company.
You can drink Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc in a bottle of wine from more or less anywhere in the world but if you want to taste Fernão Pires, Arinto, Tinto Cão, Trincadeira or any of the many delicious and unheard of grapes indigenous to Portugal then to Portugal you must turn.
For those who have followed our progress, we have succeeded with our first aim and have sponsored our to be wine expert so it’s time for a change. Our new aim is to wake up the British palate. No more New World! Enter into another world full of grapes and combinations of grapes which have been on our doorstep for years but never embraced. Who can say they have ever heard of – let alone tasted – a Fonte Cal? What? It’s time you knew about these grapes, Britain!
