Leaving the ancient city of Lagos behind you will get to know why the Algarve has become a serious contender for boutique wines in Portugal. Still relatively unknown you will be surprised how the Silves and Lagoa region is amazing for wine making. With the castle and its mourish heritage overlooking the terroir you will be taken to your first stop. Here, in the beautiful city of Silves, you will enjoy your first tasting of wine, after a small cultural tour of the city. Afterwards, you will head to an amazing private estate that is home to the second oldest vineyard in the Algarve. There, a brief history of the estate and Algarvian wine awaits. A home made meal is then prepared for you and as we seat for lunch under a spectacular 2000 (yes, two thousand) year old olive tree, where your journey through wine tasting begins. The hosts will tell you about the history of the food you will be having while you taste (generous amounts of) the lovely estate wine. We then take you back to Lagos, with a full stomach and a happy face, ending the tour and this experience.
