CASAL SANTA MARIA

What do you plan to do at the age of 95? Plant a vineyard and start a wine project? Maybe not… but that is exactly what Baron Bodo von Bruemmer did at Casal Santa Maria   But going back a little bit. Walking through the gardens of Casal Santa Maria, we realized why Baron von […]

AMPHORA WINE

Brought by the Romans to the Iberian Peninsula, perpetuated in time by the Alentejo. Today I tell you all about the ancient amphora wine! Tradition says that on St. Martin’s Day (November 11th) you should go to the cellar to taste the new wine and that’s what I did! I went to Vila Alva and […]

QUINTA DOS MURÇAS

Twenty years separate the beginning of wine tourism in Herdade do Esporão and Quinta dos Murças. It’s the Esporão family growing and doing what they know best!   It is said that it all began in 1714, when that place was already known as the Murças farm, referring to Murças captain-major. After passing through different […]

Quinta Dos Santos

A vineyard, a brewery and a tapas bar all within two years seems mission impossible … but not for Quinta Dos Santos!   On a sunny November day, I hit the road to the Algarve to visit this recent wine producer, attracted initially by the beautiful images of their instagram. After some more research I […]

Quinta de La Rosa

Quinta de La Rosa has withstood 100 years of a long and troubled history that only made it stronger and proud of its wines!   I have to confess that I’m slightly jealous (in a good way!) of Claire Feueheerd for having received as a gift from her grandmother, a place like Quinta de La […]

FLAM Winery, Israel

Flam Winery is located in the Judean Hills, a region about 20 years old, but already one of the most fascinating wine regions in the world!   My trip to Israel was not supposed to be a wine trip, but since I was there I could not miss the chance to check their wines. And […]

Quinta do Pôpa

Grampa Pôpa dreamed, his son Zeca materialized and their children gave wings to this much-desired wine project in the Douro!   To get to Quinta do Pôpa it is important to have a car. Some estates in Douro are accessible by train, but this is not the case here. Which is not necessarily bad, as […]
