Carne de vinha d'alhos is a Portuguese dish categorized according to mode of preparation as an adobo. The name means "meat with wine and garlic", the meat usually being pork or rabbit. It is traditionally served at Christmas time in Madeira.[1]

Vinho d'alhos was taken by people from the Portuguese islands of Madeira and the Azores to the Americas where it is known as "pickled pork" or "vinyoo dalyge". It is also known as "garlic pork" in Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana where it was introduced in the early 19th century.

The curry dish vindaloo is an Indian interpretation of carne de vinha d'alhos, which was developed in the former Portuguese colony of Goa in Portuguese India. In Goa, the dish is called vindalho, closer to its Portuguese counterpart.
