Entre o Mar e a Serra, há um brunch e uma prova de vinhos
Are you one to run away from the mainstream, tourist-packed tracks? I invite you to come with me and experience a sensorial tour of this region. The day starts at 11:00 am at our meeting point in Cascais. From there, we follow through emblematic Guincho Road and go up the hill to our first stop for brunch, shall I say "the brunch". The place seems to have been taken from the book of Cervantes, and you'll see what I mean when you get there. When the clock hits 1:00 pm, we will head towards our next stop, an area of outstanding beauty. With a breathtaking view extending as far as the eyes can see, the picturesque village of Azenhas do Mar owes its name to its water mills. The suggestion is to contemplate the views, focus on good energy vibes and re-energise until we set off to the next stop. Then the next chapter unfolds. We will have a sneak peek of the vineyards that grow on sand-rich soil, an original kind of viticulture with unusual and ancestral cultural techniques. Curious? You will have the opportunity to learn more. The next and last stop, at 15:00h, will take us to Adega of Colares. Here, a guided tour will last approximately 1 hour. You will listen to stories, find interesting facts about the cellar and its wines, and enjoy a wine tasting paired with light snacks. It will amaze you how unique their features are. Brunch and Tasting require advance booking.
