Can I customize my shipment?

Part of the fun is that we do the selection for you! We will offer you a mix of styles of wine, some classic and traditional and some a little more funky and unique. Our mission is to celebrate the simple things Virgil loves: time with the ones you love, showing you care, a good bottle of wine whether you're getting, gifting, or sharing. We hope you'll love trying new things you might not otherwise choose and we'll make sure you have an interesting bottle and a good story to bring to your next dinner party!

However, if you need wine for a unique gift or specific occasion, we can help! Just shoot us an email and we can recommend something from our cellar or get sourcing especially for you.

Do you take product recommendations?

Our ears are open. If you think know a wine or product that is a good fit for our site, please email us We'd love to hear your story. While the majority of our items are sourced from Portugal, we are happy to learn of suggested artisans from other origins.

What does the owl logo represent?

After leaving the fishing industry, Virgil worked as a barber into his early eighties. On his lunch break from work he would often leave notes for his wife and his grandchildren who he knew would be visiting after school. Virgil always signed his notes with his signature owl. The "V" for Virgil was the frame for the owl's face. Owls constantly remind Virgil's family of him and the logo was adapted from one of his original notes.
