Wine tasting and lunch to raise funds for autistic children

A charity wine tasting and lunch to benefit autistic children in the Algarve is being held at the Veneza restaurant and wine cellar in Mem Moniz, near Paderne, on Saturday, November 14 at 1pm. Wines will be from the Herdade da Maroteira in the Alentejo, presented by producer Philip Mollett.

The Rotarian Wine Appreciation Fellowship and the Lions International Club of Loulé are working together to raise funds to sponsor underprivileged autistic children from the Algarve to attend a summer camp programme in 2016.

The wines being presented are made by António Maçanita, one of the rising stars of the Portuguese wine industry.

Several wines will be served with appropriately matched food and will also be available for sale at special promotional prices.

Guest Philip Mollett will make an additional contribution to the project for each bottle of wine purchased at the lunch. Philip’s young son participated in such a summer camp this year and it was, in fact, Philip’s idea to raise funds for autistic children.

The presentation of the wines will be in both Portuguese and English. Price for the lunch is €35 with €10 from each ticket to benefit the charity.
