"The best way to get to know something is to become it".
This is a short blog sharing with friends and clients of 7 Mares, our one week experience traveling around some of the most beautiful regions in Portugal, visiting producers and getting immerse in the real culture of Portugal.
Day 1. Porto and its beautiful architecture. Small streets, hills and charming people. We took the bus who drove us around Porto and finally, we walked around its beautiful streets. We did a Porto wine tasting at Taylor's, a very well known port house. During the day, we had the great company of two friends: Ina and Ljubi. For lunch we tasted a real deliciousness: "Francesinha", a must try while in Portugal, paired with white and red wine from the Douro region.
Highlights: Porto wine tasting in Taylor's & dinner at Taberna "Folias de Baco", run by Tiago Sampaio, oenologist and wine producer who offered a wine tasting for 7 Mares last winter, part of the trilogy of "Winter mit den Winzern" in February.
