My Story

When I was six my beloved Portuguese nanny Leonor returned to Lisbon to start a family. In 2008 I found her on Facebook,  boarded a plane and spent the summer with her ... and fell in love with Portugal and its wine.  Working in  the wine business stateside I was shocked that I couldn't find interesting small production wines in CA.  The wine biz folks all had the explanation; "Phenomenal wines, but too much effort to sell."  - XYZ Sales Exec.
I created Rachel Farah selections to import the wine myself, cut out the middle men and tell Portugal's hidden stories directly to you.  For the past four years I have been traveling to Portugal, renting a car and driving up and down the country solo visiting small producers.  I believe deeply in these wines and I encourage you to pop a cork, or two, and discover Portugal!
