Where do I start. First, I want to talk about how friendly, kind, and amazing the people of Portugal are. They care about their visitors as if they are family. They are so proud of their amazing country and it really shows. Armando is no exception. After exchanging some emails about our preference of wines, Armando made a custom trip just to our liking.
Armando came to our hotel door and picked us up early in the morning. He took us from Lisbon to the Alentejo region. The countryside during the trip was absolutely beautiful. We went to three vineyards, where we met with the very passionate makers of the wines. At each location there was a tour of the operations and the grounds. Then there is a tasting and opportunity for you to buy wine (at a lot less than USA prices).
Each vineyard had something to offer other than wine. We learned so much about the process of making wine and the history behind each vineyard. Each person we met with was very kind and knowledgeable. The wines were all exactly what we wanted. They were delicious.
Between vineyards, Armando brought us to a small restaurant out in the country. The food was absolutely amazing. Again, the people of Portugal are so giving and friendly. Armando translated all of my food questions to the owner, who spent a long time with us talking about his amazing food.
We did our research before choosing this wine tour. Many people have written about how great this tour is, and they are all correct. We were very pleased with the entire day we spent with armando. I would HIGHLY recommend you do this if you are in Portugal.
