You will get to see and feel:
Much of the Setubal wine region area is flat and sandy, with the exception of the Serra da Arrábida, a short chain of mountains running along the south coast of the peninsula, where the soils are made of limestone or clay-limestone.
DOC Palmela is based on the late-ripening Castelão grape, which is more at home in the hot, sandy soils of Palmela than anywhere else in Portugal, ripening well to make wines of complexity and depth, elegance and balance, with good cherry fruit. On the whites, you will taste very fresh and vibrant wines with iodine notes, an ideal company for the terrific fish and seafood, abundant in the region.
Your adventure begins with a leisurely drive through the beautiful Setubal and Azeitão landscape. Then you will visit 2 traditional wine producers; here you will get to know and experience the famous Muscat from Setubal, and the Doc wines of the region,
Lunch on a typical Setubal or Sesimbra restaurant where you will realize why Portugal boasts the world´s finest fish. The secret? Traditional family recipes transferred through generations, an endless variety of specialties, and the raw willingness to experiment without barriers in the kitchen.
The tiles on Portuguese facades are ideal for a souvenir to your loved ones or to decorate your home so that you can always remember your stay in Portugal.
You can buy the colorful azulejos throughout the country, but here you can also paint them yourself! And that´s what you are going to try during the afternoon: paint your own tiles. During this very entertaining workshop, you will learn different techniques of ceramic tile painting.
Wines and art? Well, they seem to go hand in hand…
