Reviews
It was an incredible ✂️ experience, a great pruning workshop by Diogo. This is a beautiful estate in this region, worth visiting; walk through the vineyards and watch the birds around the garden. They have the largest barrel collection in the region; we had cheese and wine tasting at the end; I loved Cabeça de Toiro Reserva Branco 🍇Fernão Pires (50%)/Chardonnay/Sauvignon Blanc and Cabeça de Toiro Bull’s Temptation 🍇 Syrah/Alicante Bouschet.
