Broken Azulejos

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 a country I’ve come to love. While I lived on the Sintra coast for more than four years, my exploration of the land and love for the friends I’ve made has deepened.

Now I invite you to walk beside me, tasting the flavors and wines, climbing the rocks that palisade the coast, and listening to the music of the oceans and forests. Read my latest story here.

366 Vinhos

I set out in 2016 to taste a new wine for every day…an ambitious project! Five years later, I had 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, 2021, and now 2024. And we believe in wine tasting with those small producers who can share their stories intimately with us. Though we’re now based in the U.S. we continue these connections.

Savoring Portugal

As an avid cook and food enthusiast and seasoned traveler, I’ve found a number of restaurants and foodie havens in Portugal worth sharing.
