Wining and dining at a small family winery

Wining and dining at a small family winery

Experience the best of the Setúbal Peninsula wine region like a local.  Explore a small town, see the farmlands and mountains and enjoy a home-cooked Portuguese lunch at a family winery.  Taste and learn about the region’s beloved Moscatel de Setúbal, a deliciously sweet yet little known fortified wine, along with other reds and whites.

Start your day trip to the countryside with a “Portuguese breakfast” of traditional coffee and regional pastries from the area.  I’ll tell you about the origin of Portuguese café and their numerous pastelarias.

Take a walk to a small town market where you’ll learn about the classic ingredients in Portuguese cuisine.  We’ll have the chance to chat with the locals and pick up some seasonal market munchies.

Visit one of Portugal’s most renowned wineries and take a historical tour of their original estate.   We’ll finish with a tasting of 3 wines- a white, a red and a Moscatel from the producer’s current selection.

Enjoy a wine-filled lunch at a small boutique winery, prepared by the owner’s family and paired with 3 of their known wines- white, red and Moscatel.  The lunch will also include sampling the region’s famous Azeitão cheese and local desserts.

Relax and digest after lunch on drive through the countryside, where we’ll pass through vineyards and pretty little towns and stop to visit an old mountain-top fort for some picturesque views of the valley and ocean.  If you like to shop, we can stop at an artisan tile factory where they hand-make/paint traditional Portuguese Azulejo tiles (they also ship to the US).

A perfect day in the country!
