What a wonderful tasting! Seven of us tasted five different ports over the course of the tasting, Luis thoughtfully paired various cheeses, nuts, jams and chocolates with each port but encouraged us to try out different pairings as everyone's palats are different. Great experience, great value, next time we are in Faro we will try a differen tasting for sure!

In this shop, excellent in wine and Port, you can take a wine tasting with regional Algarve wines and food-pairing. The owner is an expert in the area of wine and food comparison. We had a two hour tasting of wine combined with cheese, Meat, figjam,tuna-salad and port with black chocolate and almond nuts . One of the Ports was chilled, that was totally new for us, but it was good.
Highly recomended!!

On Friday, May 15, we had a wine and port tasting at about wine. Young wine specialist Luiz told us enthusiastic and proud about the Portuguese wines and Ports. He took his time, or maybe it was just that he couldn't stop talking about his passion. His knowledge was not only about the drinks, but also about the region, history, and food.

We had three different wines and three different ports, which all surprised me because of their distinct character. A few were from very new winemakers, so they really keep up with the Portuguese developments. The by Luiz self selected cheeses, meat, and nuts were worth a tasting on its own. I would recommend everybody to take a stop at about wine!

Dear Sjoerd,

Many thanks for your great comment! For us, it is very important to know that you both had a good wine experience at About Wine. And yes, you are right... It is very hard to stop talking about wines, even more with people so nice as you both. We hope to see you again in a short term. Best regards, Luís.
