The Winemaker Experience

89,00 €  

Our farm is a superb wine estate situated in the heart of the Western Algarve. From very humble beginnings this 44 hectare estate is now considered one of the best wineries in the Algarve with recognition from international organizations and visitors coming from far and wide.

This boutique wine estate is a place full of surprises. There is plenty in store for those who wish to delve into the world of winemaking or simply enjoy a nice day out exploring the history and natural beauty of the grounds.

Join us for a hands-on Bottle Blending experience. A 3 hour workshop, during which you will get the chance to master the art of blending our premium red wines.

During our Bottle Blending Workshop our winemaker will lead you through a tasting of our premium wines, guiding you through the sensory evaluation skills needed to judge a good wine. Then the fun work starts!

We will give you Barrel Tastings of up to four of our best mono-varieties, which are ready for blending. Once you have tasted them all and blended them in diferent combinations, you will have created your very own cuveé.

We will lead you through hand-bottling, filling out the labels with your blend´s characteristics, setting and sealing the cork with wax. You then get to take your personally crafted bottle of wine home with you that very day.
