About the Tour: Step into a world of sensory delights with our four-hour wine tour departing from Lagos. This isn't just a wine-tasting experience; it's a journey that takes you through the heart of the Algarve's stunning landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture. As you traverse the countryside, you'll encounter nature in its purest form, breathe in the fresh aromas of the land, and be captivated by views that can only be described as breathtaking.
The Nature Experience: As we make our way through the Algarve's rolling hills, you'll be greeted by the sight of lush orange groves, their vibrant hues contrasting beautifully with the deep greens of ancient cork trees. These are the famous Algarve oranges, known for their sweetness and rich flavor. The cork trees, some of the oldest in the region, stand as silent witnesses to the passage of time, their bark harvested in a sustainable manner for generations. This is a land where nature and tradition coexist in harmonious balance, and you'll feel that harmony envelop you as we explore.
The Winery Visit: Our first stop is a local winery, where the art of winemaking comes alive. Here, you'll delve into the intricacies of the wine production process, from the vine to the bottle. A guided tour will take you through the production room and into the wooden barrel room, where the wines age to perfection. The highlight, of course, is the tasting session, where you'll savor three local wines, each with its unique character and flavor profile. These wines are accompanied by a plate of delectable tapas, featuring local cheeses and sausages, offering a complete gastronomic experience.
The Historical Exploration: From the winery, we'll head to the picturesque city of Silves, an ancient Moorish village that boasts one of the most beautiful castles in Portugal. As you wander through its cobbled streets, you'll feel transported back in time, each stone whispering secrets of a bygone era. You'll have ample free time to explore Silves at your own pace, perhaps visiting the castle or simply soaking in the ambiance of this charming village.
