Usually starting in the Alentejo Wine Region and the Algarve Wine Region were the grape maturations are faster due to the hotter sunny climate.
This year we were at a small family wine estate, the Monte da Casteleja combining great Organic White, Red and Rosé Wines with a small countyside wine guesthouse. An excellent pick since the owners hospitality, Guillaume and Maria, leaved us with a special feeling from the overall experience. A traditional lunch full of great Portuguese specialties like the Portuguese Gaspacho, Fresh Salads, Fava Bean Stew and Great Desserts from the Algarve Region.
Late September was also the month for Setúbal Wine Region, Bairrada Wine Region, Dão Wine Region and Douro Wine Region. Hopefully the wines will bring as much fun and pleasure as making them did!
