Since 2019 we have been recording our own Butlers Podcast. It was my idea trying to do something no one else was really doing in the wine world at the time and it grew from there.

Our niece Evie does the intros and outros for us and Henry and I record them all on my iphone in one take. 

We discuss wine trends, different regions or grape varieties, wine producing countries etc plus a few random things when I get distracted.

Meandro Branco, Do Vale Meao, Douro, 2015

We have managed to secure a few bottles of a Douro white wine at a great price, with a bit of cellar age, at a great price.

Meandro comes from one of our favorite wine estates Quinta do Vale Meao in the Douro Valley, Portugal. The vineyards are owned and farmed by the Olazabal  family, who have been tending the vineyards in this area since 1870. The winery is now run by Francisco "Xito" Olazabal, a true Douro character, and excellent winemaker.

The climate here is perhaps more suitable for ripening red grape varieties, and the heat can be a problem for white wines. But at Meao, they have multiple sites, on different soils at different altitudes. This allows Xito to put together the best suited varieties and vineyards, resulting in a really fresh Douro white wine.


It is a blend of Portuguese varieties Arinto, which gives you fresh acidity and a salty tang,  and Rabigato which provides plenty of fruit. Seven years down the line, this humble wine still shines, the fresh acidity has not died away, it is balanced and still offers plenty of enjoyment. Sadly we only have a handful of bottles.


Highly rated by critics, well worth a try!
