Here’s A Toast To Portugal’s Wineries & Vineyards
As a lover of wine, perhaps you've always liked the idea of
walking through vineyards and stepping on a few grapes to make some
wine, shortly followed by some sipping or slurping after all that
hard work - anyone got a glass?
I'm sure the very best and most charming traditional wineries
can forgive the smell of cheese in the air when you kick your
flip-flops off and explore the one million acres of vines Portugal
has to offer.
You may associate wine tasting as a French delicacy and perhaps
unaware of The Algarve's emergence as a key player in the making of
wine. You'll be interested to learn that native grape varieties are
still hand picked to this day, continuing the trend for being the
most renowned producers of all types, colours and flavours of wine
in the world - cheers to that!
Thus, while many tourists that embark on the coast of Portugal
in search of sunshine, golden beaches and superb golf courses, the
wine tourism trade is ordering it's next round of claret and
sophistication to the table.
The popularity of wine tourism has grown immensely because of
its culture and worthwhile experience, not to mention it is also an
enjoyable, easy and fairly cost-effective alternative from the
norm. After all, it's a good excuse to pop a cork or two, with the
Portuguese consuming around 43.7 litres of wine per capita.
Portugal doesn't just invite you to a vineyard, do a tasting and
send you on your way with a couple of bottles of Casal de
Ventozela, you're able to learn about the finery of wine at your
own pace. Whether it be tasting or talking about the win, wine is
there to be enjoyed for all here in The Algarve.
As many holidaymakers like to do when venturing into the
unknown, a search on 'What to do' is never far from your thoughts.
