Village Views & Portuguese Wines
Discover a charming Algarve fishing village and a modern Estate famous for its wine production. This Yachting Land Adventure begins by driving past Praia da Rocha in the direction toward Alvor, a little fishing port with a history that extends back to the Classical Era. It is believed the Carthaginians founded the city and its importance is confirmed by the ruins of a wealthy Roman villa located slightly inland from the present village. In the time of the Moors, who first occupied the area in 716, the village was named Albur and it passed through Portuguese and Moorish hands several times. Alvor, as its known today, is a charming blend of popular modern-day resort and quaint old-world village.
After spending some free time in Alvor, we will make our way to Quinta dos Vales where we will have a guided visit of the property (Sculpture Garden, vineyards and the wine lodge) followed by a wine tasting session of the wines produced and accompanied by a splendid selection of Portuguese snacks. The wines created at this estate have already received several awards in international wine contests. The wine tasting with the Portuguese snacks will take place in the well preserved tasting room of the manor house. After a refreshing experience we will re-board our coach and make our way back to the beautiful SeaDream yacht.
