Through the stories that have unfolded as I collect bits of tile, flowers, sea glass, and stones around Portugal, I share with you here my ongoing discovery of the country I've come to love. Since moving to the Sintra coast more than three years ago, my exploration of the land and love for the friends I've made has deepened.
I set out in 2016 to taste a new wine for every day...an ambitious project! Five years later, I have travelled the breadth of Portugal via its wines, and I share my notes on quintas, adegas, and herdades, as well as specific wines each month in 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. And we believe in wine tasting with those small producers who can share their stories intimately with us.
As an avid cook and food enthusiast and seasoned traveler, I've found a number of restaurants and foodie havens in Portugal worth sharing.
