WINE TASTING ON THE SILVER COAST
Portugal’s Silver Coast produces a wide range of excellent red and white wines, liqueurs and spirits. Many of the wines rival those of Spain, France and the New World in quality. Produced mainly for consumption in Portugal they are rare visitors to the shelves of your local wine shops and supermarkets. This is a unique opportunity to taste undiscovered wines, explore centuries old quintas and sample the local cuisine.
Some pre-planning and advance booking may be required but the result will be a great day out with some delicious Silver Coast cuisine in the heart of beautiful countryside. The Silver Coast offers three established wine routes that take in not just some of the leading vineyards of the area, but some of its historic sights as well.
Mountains and Orchards of Grapes
Silver Coast wines come from one of the country’s main fruit producing regions, and the wine routes trace a path through a green and lush landscape that is caught between the mountains of Montejunto and the shores of the Atlantic ocean.
Vineyard near Obidos on the Silver Coast
It is a countryside that begs to be explored and those who are tempted to leave the beaten track of the wine routes will find rewards of their own along the narrow lanes that wind through the rolling countryside and sleepy villages of the interior. But the wine routes are a great place to start, of course!!
Food and Wine – A Once In A Life-Time Experience
Each offers a day’s excursion that includes some sight-seeing, some wine tasting and many opportunities to sample the local cuisine at the restaurants you will pass along the way. Visitors are advised to contact Themed Holiday Ideas first so that we can check with the vineyards the opening hours and availability for you.
