General

When the Algarve comes to mind, it is all about summer holidays, natural untouched beaches and tranquil blue sea, long lunches by the pool and warm evenings that so easily blend into the following morning. We seldom consider something that fits perfectly in all the above scenarios: wine!

Wine Tourism

More and more, the vineyards are also a reason to go to the Algarve, and several cellars and wine estates await your visit.

Like other regions, the Algarve has a long-standing winemaking tradition, but one which was usually marked by high quantity and not quality. In recent years, new winemaking techniques and ideas have made their way into the region, thus resulting in much improved wine which therefore has also led to an increase in the wine tourism. 

If you enjoy playing golf, then here you have a huge variety of golf courses along the entire coast, where the Atlantic Ocean is always the backdrop of your green.

Next time you visit the region, think of switching a beach day for a wine tour and get to know the freshness of Algarve wines!

Here you can find lively and fruity wines, combining with the Mediterranean climate of this region. Negra Mole is the most important grape variety of the region that produces red wines with a totally different profile that wines from the rest of the country. Wine with little color but a lot of flavor, that perfectly combines with hot days and fish and seafood dishes.
