A full day of local wine tastings
– October 20, 2023
In celebration of World Wine Tourism Day, Lagoa will host a special event, the “Arade Wine Experience”, on Saturday, November 11.
The event will take participants on a wine tour around the municipality, starting with a meet-up at Ferragudo’s Praça Rainha Dona Leonor at 9.30am.
This will be followed at 10am by a tasting of wines from the Algarve Golden Terroir, the joint bid of Lagoa, Lagos and Silves for European Wine Capital of 2023, with a view of the Arade river.
The event will continue at 12.30pm at Arvad Wine, one of the region’s newest winemakers, where participants will arrive by boat for “delicious lunch paired with the winemaker’s wines.”
Morgado do Quintão will be the last stop on the tour at 4pm, a family property which will provide a tasting of “authentic wines” originating from “sustainable and organic practices in which the native and traditional grape varieties of Lagoa and the Algarve take centre stage”.
Participants will then be taken back to Praça Rainha Dona Leonor at 6pm.
Tickets for Arade Wine Experience are already for sale.
Tickets cost €45 per person and can be purchased online or at the ticket offices of CTT, Fnac, Worten, Carlos do Carmo auditorium, São José convent, and the Balcão Único in Lagoa.
