Some of the best local wines will be showcased at the eighth edition of Portimão Wine Tasting, which will take place between July 21 and 23 at the Santa Catarina fortress in Praia da Rocha.


The event provides visitors with the opportunity to taste local wines whilst also enjoying live music and stunning views of the Arade River and Praia da Rocha.


This edition will feature wines from Quinta da Penina, Arvad Wines and Aveleda SA. There will also be food to pair with the wines, from spit-roasted pork to regional cheeses and sausages.

Portimão Wine Tasting will take place from 8pm to midnight and will be free to visit, although those seeking to taste the wines must buy a tasting glass for €2, while each wine tasting can range from €2.50 to €3.


The event is organised by the Portimão Tourism Association with the support of Portimão Council, the Sines and Algarve Port Administration and the Algarve Wine Commission (CVA).
