Taste some of the best Algarve has to offer


The Portuguese pride themselves on their gastronomy and wine, and they definitely can't be missed when visiting!
Take the opportunity to visit a local wine cellar and try what this undiscovered wine region has to offer. Generally young wines, and not too bold in terms of taste, between the reds, whites and rosés there is sure to be something for you.

Seeing as the locals have a sweet tooth, it might also be a good idea to try the local sweets, of which one is especially important (and delicious) to try: the local marzipan sweets. Even for those who are not big fans of marzipan, do not feel like you will not like it!
The taste is a bit different, and because these are only made with real almonds, the taste is very mild and not too sweet.
Also, it does help that they look very cute in photos. . . Really worth trying!

If you are 1 or two people only, please inquire me for a reduced price and a customised tour.
