Quinta dos Vales Wine Tastings

Lagoa Wine Experiences returns for first session of 2022

Last year’s event surpassed expectations

Lagoa Wine Experiences, an event held for the first time in 2021 which opened the doors of local wine estates to wine lovers, is returning this year with its first session taking place on Saturday, May 28, between 10.30am and 6pm.

Participants will meet at the Carlos do Carmo auditorium from where they will be taken to the Quinta dos Vales wine estate in Estômbar for a morning of wine tasting.

This will be followed by a welcome drink and lunch at Única – Adega Cooperativa do Algarve, while in the afternoon the fun will continue at Morgado do Quintão for more wine tasting.

Tickets cost €45 per person and include the wine tasting experiences, lunch and transport. They can be purchased online at www.ticketline.sapo.pt or at Lagoa’s usual outlets (Carlos do Carmo auditorium, São José convent and Balcão Único).

Says the local council, which organises the event, the 2022 edition has been improved and includes “more winemakers, more sessions, and many novelties”.

Last year, the council said that public interest in the event was “massive with demand strongly outweighing availability”. A total of 223 people took part in the six sessions, which were held at Quinta dos Santos, Única – Adega Cooperativa do Algarve, Morgado do Quintão, Quinta da Palmeirinha, Dona Niza Wines, Arvad Wines, Monte de Salicos and Quinta dos Vales.
