Bottle blending workshop at the art inspired Quinta dos Vales
This beautiful Quinta is located in Estômbar, close to Portimao in the south, central Algarve. The private owner has decorated the garden and the production unit with his own creative and beautiful sculptors. This is a perfect symbol of the true artform of quality wine making. Learn the art and science of wine blending in a 3-hour workshop, where you start as a novice in the vineyards and end as an “expert” with a bottle of wine that you blended yourself!
During this unique experience you will have all the required equipment and guidance at your disposal, which will allow you to master the challenge of creating your own blend. You will also get a tour around the winery and have a light lunch with local delicacies.
Bottle Blending Workshop is the introductory step of our ‘The Winemaker Experience’, which gives you the opportunity to go from a winelover to a real winemaker, owning a part of the wine yard at Quinta dos Vales even if you live in another country. You can learn more here.
Experience the Monchique gold – The awarded olive oil produced with passion by generations
We continue the trip on narrow, beautiful roads through cork tree forests up to the mountains of Monchique. Surrounded by silence and breathtaking views, we find Lagar dos Pardierios. This olive farm welcomes you to experience a thousands of years old tradition of refinement of olives..
The Lagar is known for its long tradition and the use of old Monchique syenite stone millstones, thus maintaining its original design. It is with this attention to detail and respect for traditions the family produce our high-quality olive oil, renowned for its unique flavour and aroma.
This 3 hours experience includes a guided experience of the production with a tasting session to get to know quality oil, a Portuguese Tiborna lunch and a walk around the olive grove.
After these culinary wow-moments, we go to the highest point in the Algarve and enjoy the amazing view before arriving to Vila Foia, where your relaxing rooms, an outdoor jacuzzi and pool are waiting. All of it served with a view all the way down to the sea.
