Full description
Vines love Portugal's southernmost region for the same reason the tourists do - it's never too hot, never too cold, and they can be sure to enjoy more than 3,000 hours of sunshine every year. Your wine experience first takes you to Silves and on a small cultural tour of the city. Enjoy your first glass of wine with the lovely 8th-century castle as a background. Then continue to a private estate where you will enjoy more delicious wine.  After a short drive, you will arrive at a 300-year-old family estate, the second oldest vineyard in the region. The owner of the estate will take you on a journey of the wine, the winemaking history in the Algarve, the local grape varieties and the estate's vision for wine. Then, sit at the table with a gorgeous view under a 2000-year-old olive tree and enjoy a homemade meal and wine tasting. The estate has a swimming pool so bring a swimsuit and a towel so you can go for a dip.

We have now been home from our wonderful holiday for a few days and we still think back with pleasure to the wine tasting. Maria is very friendly, enthusiastic and not only told us about wine but also gave us a nice tour in Silves. And if that wasn't enough, we now also know more about the history of Portugal. The wines were all delicious and the lunch was more than enjoyable. So don't hesitate any longer and book this unforgettable excursion!
