Discover the Algarve vineyard and how to make your own wine
Our farm is a superb wine estate situated in the heart of the Western Algarve. Join us for a hands-on Bottle Blending experience! A 3-hour workshop, during which you will get a chance to master the art of blending our young wines.
Our team of expert winemakers will support you throughout this process, teaching you how to distinguish between the different grape varieties, explaining what you should be looking for in a wine and offering their advice on how to blend the wines in different combinations and proportions, until you find your perfect unique blend!
To make it even more personal, you will be able to bottle the wine, label it and seal it with cork yourself, getting the satisfaction of holding your own creation in your hands!

During the Bottle-Blending Workshop, you:
- Learn about our full production cycle, from the field to the bottle.

- Blend, bottle, cork, and seal your very own wine creation.

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 three-hour workshop during which you get the chance to master the art of blending our premium red wines.
During our Bottle Blending Workshop, our winemaker leads 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 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 different combinations, you will have created your very own cuveé.
We 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.
We recommend tasting your blend at different stages of its maturation, e.g. after 3 months, 9 months, and 15 months. You will be amazed by how the character of the wine changes when it’s given time to develop.
Each additional bottle has a cost of 19 €.
For those who are very confident in their blending abilities, you can fill up a box with a total of six bottles of your blend, which will amount to 95 €, and we will send it to your home anywhere in continental Europe for free.
