The Algarve has a long wine tradition dating back to the Phoenicians. The production is not abundant, but its superior quality compensates for the small output. Douro or the Alentejo ... moreregions have the world recognition but the Algarve wine region is second to none.

During this tour we will visit two small wine estates with their own production. Firstly, we will visit one of the first quality wine producing estates in the region, part of a new wave that started around 15 years ago. Fall for this estate’s beautiful history and learn more about the family behind the business. Know more about the vineyards in the property and learn about the unique grape varieties and the favorable geographical conditions that give rise to the wine you will taste and its unmistakable flavor.

Visit two family-small wine estates for a different feel of the Algarve.

After a delicious lunch in Silves region, we get to the second estate. Here the old coexists with the contemporary, the tradition goes hand in hand with modernity, combining the know-how from other wine producing regions with the unique soil and climate of the Algarve. This estate was built on the foundations of a former 12th century convent main structure. From which you get an outstanding view over the Arade river and the village of Silves.

Get to know the Fortress of Sagres where Prince Henry the Navigator spent the late years of his life contemplating the unknown ocean. Delight in the landscapes and the immensity of blue that seems to go to beyond infinity.

Lagos is our next stop. Enjoy the panoramic views over Praia da Luz and the beautiful coast on the way to this ancient capital of the Algarve. In Lagos you must choose between a panoramic van tour passing by Ponta da Piedade, one of the most beautiful locations of the region with their dazzling golden rocks in a clear contrast to the turquoise blue of the sea or a 1 hour boat tour in which you will be able to see the famous cliffs of Ponta da Piedade from the water, a true natural wonder that leaves no one indifferent.

Have a relaxing lunch in the heart of Lagos. Afterwards go for a walking tour with your Cool guide and explore the old city with its medieval walls that transport us to other times, where some of the first navigators departed from.
