Protected by a mountainous barrier from the dry Nordic winds, Algarve is one of the best places to grow vineyards. Facing South, with more than 3 thousand hours of sun, this Mediterranean paradise is not only perfect terroir to produce but also to enjoy wine.
At Monchique Resort & Spa we provide several in-house wine tasting events throughout the year, as we believe that our setting is best paired with a glass of wine. We also provide booking for a few interesting wine tasting locations. And you can always enjoy a glass of wine with your loved one at our Mezzanine Bar, with its breath-taking view of a perfect sunset.
There are plenty of excellent wines in Algarve. It’s hard to pick just one, but the Paxá Special Red it’s on the top list for this winter. From Silves, a town close to the Resort, this Red is robust, made from Syrah, Aragonez , Alicante bouschet. Its rich aroma of black woodland fruit and long lasting finish are best paired with traditional winter dishes like curated meat or cheese. Perfect to be enjoyed at one of our suites overlooking the undulating hills while the fog sits for the night.
From another very close vineyard, the citrus coloured, smooth and well-balanced Grace Vineyard white wine is perfect for an elegant event. From Quinta dos Vales wine estate, this wine provides a memorable and pleasant finish. Just like that special moment.
