On the way in I noticed a bottle of 2001 Quinta do Vale Meão (one of the Douro Boys) in the wine cabinet. Unfortunately the 2001 was 85€ on the wine list. Actually not an unreasonable price seeing as this wine retails at around 60€ but still more than we wanted to pay. Luckily they had the 2007 Meandro, the second wine of Quinta do Vale Meão. This was excellent – soft with mouthfilling fruit with well integrated tannins. This wine was in the Douro Boys tasting on 30th October when I thought it needed more time to soften. Just shows the influence of food.
O Magano is just across the road from Garrafeira de Campo d'Ourique a very good wine shop. Worth booking as it gets from busy from about 9pm, especially at the weekends. When we left a little after 10pm there was a queue for tables.
