Portimão showcases local wines at Santa Catarina fortress
Portimão will be showcasing its local wines in another edition of the ‘Portimão Wine Tasting’ event, taking place at the Santa Catarina fortress in Praia da Rocha from July 19 to 21.
The summer event gives residents and visitors an opportunity to taste the wines that are made by local wineries in a stunning setting with a view of the famous Praia da Rocha beach.
Organisers have revealed that Quinta da Penina, Herdade dos Pimentéis and Aveleda will be representing Portimão in this year’s wine tasting event.
Organised by the Portimão Tourism Association, the event is free to attend and will take place between 8am and midnight.
ATP says that it wants the town’s winemaking sector to become an attraction for local tourism.
“Our wine is complementary to the the sun and sea and hopefully we can use the sector as a vehicle to fight seasonality,” the association says.
