– April 9, 2024 | Text Alexandra Stilwell

Algarve Wine Tourism, a new wine route of the region promoted by the Algarve Wine Commission, was recently awarded the prize for the best 2023 Wine Tourism at the Vinho Grande Escolhas Awards. The ceremony, organised by the publication of the same name, took place at the Estoril Congress Centre.

The Grandes Escolhas Awards are held every year to celebrate the top achievements in Portugal’s gastronomy and wine tourism industry.

Some of the categories featured in this event are awards for top wines, experts, businesses, goods, dining establishments, wineries, and organisations involved in the production and sale of wine in Portugal.

Through Algarve Wine Tourism, you can explore a unique and vibrant wine route across the region. It is promoted by the Algarve’s Wine Commission, the organisation responsible for certifying wine products with a designation of origin in Lagos, Portimão, Lagoa, and Tavira, and geographical indication of the Algarve,” said Sara Silva, President of the Board of the Algarve Wine Commission.

In the Lagoa area, for example, the Leisure Route takes visitors to the Quinta dos Capinhas vineyard, in Porches, for a tour and a wine tasting experience. Further out in Silves, the programme includes a harvesting experience at Cabrita Wines.

The prestigious “Wine Tourism 2023” trophy validates and enhances the excellence of this route and its products, creating the ideal pairing for a trip to the Algarve that encompasses food, entertainment, history, and sampling the finest Algarve wines.
