Last week, we brought this awesome bottle of Portugese red wine over to Jeff’s parents house to enjoy with the delicious dinner Kathy cooked for us.  We loved it so much that we wanted to share it with you.

Plus, we’re so excited to be planning our honeymoon next year to Portugal!  We’re looking forward to visiting all the great vineyards and tasting the wines.
