Organised by local distributor Prime Wines, the first event is the Valdivieso Laranjal Golf & Wine Challenge being held on Quinta do Lago’s Laranjal course on the 6th. Prizes include 3-litre bottles of some fine vintages from Valdivieso. A dinner and prize giving will take place at The Shack and the cost is €99 for golf and dinner or €45 for dinner only including pairing of six top wines from the producer.
On Sunday, a more structured tasting will take place at Aquarelle Restaurant in Almancil featuring 10 wines and a degustation menu priced at €55 per person.

The wines of Valdivieso have achieved quite some success here in the Algarve, especially in the Golden Triangle area where they are stocked at many of the best restaurants. A selection of the wines can be found at Apolónia Supermarkets in Almancil and Galé. Patrick Stuart
