Our Story

Brought to you by the team behind FESTA Portuguese Wine Festival 2022 by Bar Douro - a landmark event at London's Tobacco Dock - FESTA Bottle Shop celebrates Portugal’s dynamic wine scene.

With over 250 native grape varieties, Portugal is home to a great diversity of truly unique, characterful wines just waiting to be discovered.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the world of Portuguese wine and browse the UK's biggest and best selection.

Our list is curated by Max Graham and Sarah Ahmed. Max, who is Anglo-Portuguese, is the founder of Bar Douro's acclaimed Portuguese wine bars. FESTA's Wine Director Sarah Ahmed is a wine writer and leading commentator on Portuguese Wine.

Overseeing FESTA's sales and Wine Club membership, Ieva Markaityte ran the wine program for top Portuguese chef Nuno Mendes' London restaurants, Taberna de Mercado and Lisboeta.
