We will visit a fantastic family farm located in Sintras hillside. On this farm, the production of wines was interrupted 100 years ago. The present owners, with the help of Portuguese and French experts, have studied the local soil and climate, modernized the production and brought their vineyards back to life. At the moment, they produce red and white wines in a traditional way with high quality and national and international recognition.
A stop in Colares in the cellars of Adega regional de Colares to have a tasting of the best regional wines.
The cooperative winery at Colares (Adega Regional de Colares) was founded in 1931. It congregates today more than 50% of the total production, with an important social role in the region. Its beautiful building dates back to the late of 19th century, with an imposing interior housing wooden barrels, casks and vats totalling more than 1 million litters capacity. It is the maturing and aging place par excellence for the wines of this appellation.
Next, visit Azenhas do Mar, a coastal village in the municipality of Sintra with a very picturesque landscape.
Next, make the short drive to Praia da Mas, a well-known beach with golden sand and clear water. Locals typically visit to spend time at the ocean as well as the near-by saltwater swimming pool.
Discover the most westerly point of continental Europe, Cabo da Roca. From the cliff tops, enjoy the fantastic view of the beaches and the sea.
