About Wine is a beautiful wine shop with an outstanding selection of Portuguese wines and a proprietor eager to provide helpful information and recommendations. From what we saw, this is the best place to buy wine in Faro. But for a real treat, book one of the wine tastings they offer. We chose the mid-level one, which included 2 whites, 2 reds, and 2 ports.
This is no ordinary wine tasting, but a very special 2 hour experience that should be enjoyable to both novice wine aficionados and experienced connoisseurs. The wines are paired with appropriate foods (cheeses, cured meats, chocolates, and an in-house prepared tuna pate that I’m still dreaming about); thus the need for an advance reservation. We sat in comfortable chairs in a quiet, inviting space and were attended to by Luis, one of the warm and friendly co-owners. He provided interesting information about the regions each wine came from and their special characteristics. His passion and knowledge – and the delicious food and drink – made the time fly by.
Our tasting at About Wine is one of our fondest memories from our two week trip to the Algarve.
