Free Guided Trip Around Portugal With Marta
We are very happy to announce our amazing competition in honour of our shiny new website! We will be taking 5 of our best customers from the independent sector with us on a trip to Portugal for 3 days. Trading in the February lull and duty rise of 8p per bottle from Monday's budget, in favour of amazing food, beautiful scenery, relaxation and of course cracking Portuguese wine. It's a wine tour quite literally taken at a Portuguese pace!
To be with a chance of winning, you just have to keep doing what you're doing... but with a little more focus on Portuguese by offering your lovely customers an Alentejo winter warmer, a big Dao red to go with that meaty stew or a Port to take off the chill after a cold day.
Starting today, the 5 businesses who are the best Marta Vine Ambassadors with the largest total value of orders until February 1st, will receive plane tickets, travel, food, accommodation and lots and lots of wine all on the house!
If you need any help with tips, pairings, etc anything to help sales, we are on hand to help, just drop us an email or a call! You could also refer to our updated catalogue for advice.
Please email us regarding the competition if you have any questions or if you require a new catalogue to your inbox!
We are Portuguese wine specialists who deal with the acquisition, importing and distributing of unique wines throughout the UK to independent wine retailers and to the on-trade. Our specialist knowledge and bespoke service offers real quality and value to the customer in this ever popular market of Portuguese wine.
Personal Service: when you buy from Marta Vine we not only supply you with delicious wines with an excellent value for money ratio, you also acquire a team who will help you promote and sell the wines to your customers via tastings, samples, marketing material and other useful support.
Smaller Minimum Orders: we have regular monthly delivery routes and deliver free of charge for all deliveries in that area however, if you’re further afield, delivery charges are either free over a specified order quantity (lower than the trade average) or very reasonable.
Unique Products: not only do we supply great Portuguese wines from lesser known and well established producers, we are starting to source wines from other countries from the Iberian peninsula that offer your customers a unique wine experience.
We’re passionate about our wines and the quality and diversity that Portuguese wines offer the market, so if you have any questions, requests or are interested in stocking our wines, please contact us and we will be happy to offer our expertise.

“I am a passionate lover of Portugal, its traditions, its cultures and definitely its wines. Portugal is home to many unique and flavoursome indigenous grape varieties that coupled with a variety of climates and landscapes make wines of such individuality and flavour that they deserve to be made more available to the British public.”
Before I met Marta I had never tried Portuguese wine, always opting for the usual suspects and finding them pleasant but not special. Life’s too short to just find things simply pleasant, I now want to love every bottle I open and Portuguese wine really fits that bill. For a fraction of what you pay from other old world producers you will find fantastic quality and amazing variety.
Wine has been a big part of my life for as longs as I can remember. With my Auntie (Marta) & Uncle (Kevin) teaching me about wine from a young age. After managing an independent wine shop in Putney & tasting wines from every country, I still find myself drawn back into the magic that is Portuguese wine. I’m hooked!
