We would have paid a good bit of money for this unique wine-tasting experience – but it was free! Numerous wines from 3 different regions of Portugal are on offer each month, and you can select up to a total of 4 of them to taste. There were even some sparkling wines available. The samples are healthy servings.
After an explanation of the process and a brief overview of the various wine regions of Portugal, you are given a sheet with a few questions along with your wine and asked to rate the wine on smell, taste, etc. and to give your opinion as to when you’d serve the wine, how much you’d pay for it, and the like. You even get to rate the label.
The tasting room is very pleasing, with high-top tables to stand at, or comfortable seating areas if you prefer. Isabel was our hostess and she was very friendly and personable. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun, not intimidating.
Hourly tastings are offered from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm, Tuesday through Saturday. We were there on a Thursday afternoon during low season and there were only 2 or 3 other people there. We were told it’s usually much busier on Saturday, so I’d recommend going on a weekday, if possible. But definitely go!
