Tours and Tickets by Portugal Farm Experiences
The lodge of our producer was bought by Charles Ridpath Blandy in the mid-19th century and not only was it an extremely valuable property, but was also very useful due to the fact that it was directly connected to the family's town house.

Each one of the Lodge's rooms has its own character and due to the differing temperatures and humidity, the wines all have differing ageing profiles based on their location. The eastern warehouse holds wine dating back to 1920 and the family's private vintage collection is held within thick stone walls, below the ground floor. The museum holds artefacts which include letters from Sir. Winston Churchill, coins from Blandy's bank and the island's oldest wooden lagar, dating back to the 17th century.

This experience will give you the opportunity to explore 200 years of Madeira wine. Available from Monday to Saturday, the tours visit the various areas of the Lodge, finishing with a tasting.

One of the most prestigious farm, who produced wines in the hands of the same family for 4 generations. The farm has undergone modernization over the past few years: vines were re-established based on traditional varieties as well as new varieties to meet market demand. You will know the story of all farm, and walk to the vineyards and to the 19th century gardens. We will visit an old distillery that was in use until 1970. There were produced brandies and grappa. After we will visit a pressing-room with stone and wood manual winepresses dated 1871. This is a real experience, so you will visit an ageing cellar of liquor wines and brandies with 36 barrels, and you will taste 7 different wines.

Our Hosts have a huge passion for Serra da Estrela. The deep knowledge of the community where they live in and of the mountain trails (Inês is a journalist and Miguel, an IT Specialist, has lived in this mountain since his childhood) allows us to reveal the stories of this territory. They also have training in geology and sustainable tourism, certificated by Geopark Estrela Association. It will be a privilege to show you the life of a shepherd.

Be part of the shepherd's work day, listen to his stories and enter into communion with nature - smell, hear, feel and taste. At the end of the hiking activity, upon arriving at the pasture, you will share with him a small meal.

Our experience will include:

- Arrival to the meeting point and welcome by the hosts

Our visit to Quinta do Sanguinhal winery was everything we asked for and more. The winery itself is well preserved, still functioning and lovely to see. The vineyards are beautiful, as are the surrounding gardens. It truly is stunning. They hold weddings in the grounds...More
