Because of its exceptional climate its soil and its south-facing location, the Algarve has what is known in specialist wine terminology as an excellent terroir for growing vines. For this reason, the Tartessians are thought to have been the first people to produce wine in the region in about 2000 B.C. They were followed by others, from the Phoenicians to Greeks and from the Celts to the Romans, who, when they brought Christianity to the Peninsula, introduced wine into the communion liturgy because it was a product regarded by the church as pure and uncorrupted.
Portuguese wine is among the world’s famous wines and with this amazing tour you will be able to discover some of the hidden gems of traditional Algarvian wine.
If you’re familiar with the Algarve, you’ll almost certainly know the major towns that lend their names to the region’s four wine DOCs (Denominação de Origem Controlada – the highest wine classification).
In recent years, the Algarve has seen a number of serious players bringing their wines to the International table. Fast becoming a novel tourist attraction for the region, many producers are not only marketing their wines, but are also promoting tours and tasting events and, in some cases, providing accommodation too. Quinta dos Vales is an excellent example of how an Algarve vineyard has combined art, lifestyle and accommodation with wine making, to appeal to a wider audience. The Quinta promotes its “unique parque experience” which includes wine tasting and tours.
