Your local host, a true Algarve insider, will whisk you off to Faro for a taste at some of the lesser-known wines of Portugal: Algarvian! The Algarve has the perfect climate for the growing of vines: it is never too hot, never too cold, and they are guaranteed more than 3,000 hours of sunshine every year! And that is only one of the reasons why Portugal is among the top fifteen wine-producing countries in the world.
Following the expert vineyard owner’s advice, you will get an introduction to the Portuguese wine varieties and the four wine DOCs, “Denominação de Origem Controlada” in Portuguese, the highest wine classification, that lie within the region of the Algarve.
This Algarve wine tasting will end with a delightful surprise for the senses from the north of Portugal, savoring a delicious port wine and dark chocolate pairing.
