The Portuguese wines are increasingly popular but many remain unknown territory. They are unique wines by the authentic character, indigenous grape varieties, often unpronounceable names (alvarinho, loureiro, trajadura ..) and the old, traditional way of winemaking combined with modern production methods.
Besides the Algarve wines you taste wines from the Douro, Vinho Verde, Dao, Alentejo, Bairrada, Oeste, Bucelas, Palmela, Colares, Carcavelos, Arrabida, Setubal and Moscatel.
On request, visits to local wineries and wine tastes are possible.
Besides the Portuguese wines, some typical spirits can be found in the Algarve, including Porto, Aguardente, Medronho and Brandymel.
Amarguinha, a Portuguese almond liqueur, is definitely worth trying!
The cocktails and typical Portuguese drinks are available in most bars and restaurants.
