Portugal Day 3 in Pictures

Day 3 found it raining even harder, but nothing would keep us from getting out and about! We visited Borba Coop where more of Enoforum’s wines are produced and bottled. Lunch today was at A Cadeia in Estremoz and after lunch we visited Vila Vicosa and Alandroal. A little rainy in Vila Vicosa, but it had cleared enough by the time we got to Alandroal to roam around a bit. We are off to dinner now, so I’ll report on that later! For now, more photos!

Enoforum wine from the Alente line, the Premium Red, one of my favorites so far.

Pretty building I liked in Vila Vicosa

The label is made of cork! From Borba Coop, wine is also tasty!

Lunch "A Cadeia." Local specialty, salt cod, so good!

A Cadeia, the restaurant is actually in the old town jail!


Portugal Day 2 in Pictures

On day 2, our internet failed for the day, so I was unable to share photos of our adventures yet. Today we are back online! On day 2 we visited Carmim Coop and some of the vineyards from which they source grapes. We ate in a very good restaurant,  Taberna Al-Andaluz in Reguengos for lunch and for dinner at a very tiny, but delicious place, Botequim da Mouraría in Évora. We also walked through Castle Monsaraz. Enjoy a few pictures for now, with more details on everything we have eaten, drank, and done when I have a bit more time on my hands to devote to blogging!

Quince! I've never seen one before & it took us a while to figure out what it was!
