The new route, called Algarve Wine Tourism, was created “to affirm the Algarve on the national wine regions map”.
On March 23, the Algarve’s Wine Commission presented Algarve Wine Tourism, the region’s new wine route.
Following the launch of Algarve Wine Tourism at Wine & Travel week in Porto last February, and at the BTL, in Lisbon, at the beginning of March, the project was presented at the Hotel PortoBay Falésia, in Albufeira, partner of Vinhos do Algarve and the new Algarve Wine Route.
The event was attended by official entities, such as the CCDR Algarve, the Regional Directorate for Agriculture and Fisheries, the Algarve Tourism Region, various representatives of Municipalities and regional and national Associations, the media and several producers.
A visit and lunch were held at Quinta da Tôr in Loulé after the official presentation, followed by a visit to Quinta do Canhoto in Albufeira.
To end the day’s programme, a special “Negra Mole – The expression of a terroir” tasting was led by sommelier Miguel Martins.
The event was organised with the support of the Municipality of Albufeira, Hotel PortoBay Falésia, Quinta da Tôr, Loulé Criativo, Quinta do Canhoto, and Sommelier Miguel Martins
