Welcome to Wine Making!
Have you considered starting with a prepared Kit? I have made six batches using WinExpert Kits, which include the Grape Juice and everything else besides hardware equipment. And wine from these kits all turned out very well for me.

Here is a link to a dealer that ships WinExpert kits from the United Kingdom:

From this dealer the shipping cost should be rather low for you. Good Luck starting to make your own wine!

Starting with kits can teach a lot about making wine if you haven't made it before

wine kits no not really they arent available in portugal and for me part of the fun is taking care of the vineyard and watch it grow my grapes.

Welcome and good luck with your new vineyard! Growing grapes to make wine can be very rewarding and educational at the same time! You have chosen some very good winegrapes to grow, in my opinion. Best of luck!

Gonçalo, you seem to already be an expert at the most important part of winemaking-- growing the right grapes. Bravo!
