Tasting wines of the region

On Wednesday September 19, the Algarve Wine Society will be hosting a wine tasting at the Eva Hotel in Faro, for the Monte Novo e Figueirinha winery, located just northwest of Beja.

The wines available at the winery are sold under the Fonte Mouro, Herdade de Figueirinha, Amnésia and Intuição labels and total production is approximately 1 million bottles per year.

They will be presented by José Gonçalves, with the tasting starting promptly at 6.30pm.

The tasting, followed by a dinner, will be held on the roof-top restaurant, where the meal will begin with a cover of bread, melba toast, butter, cheese, pork and Algarve-style carrots.

The starter is cow’s milk mozzarella with tomato, flor de sal and Balsamic essence.

For the main course there will be stuffed pork tenderloin with sausage and salt potatoes, then for dessert there will be chocolate cake with egg strands.

All will be complemented by Monte Novo e Figueirinha wines.

The fee will be €35 for members and €40 for guests. As the event is limited to 80 attendees, booking is encouraged as soon as possible.

The organisers Elsbeth Graf and Larry Hampton look forward to welcoming you.
