WINE-BLEND­ING WORK­SHOP

Business Traveller - - WHERE TO HEAT -

Get ready to fol­low your nose with a work­shop at one of the best wine pro­duc­ers in the re­gion. Avail­able for groups of ten to 400 peo­ple, a visit to one of the Sin­tra vine­yards guar­an­tees one of the best meth­ods of bring­ing peo­ple to­gether – booze. Set in an 18th-cen­tury barn, the work­shop is all about get­ting to know var­i­ous grapes, iden­ti­fy­ing the flavours in wine, bot­tling, and of course seal­ing us­ing cork, one of Por­tu­gal’s pri­mary ex­ports. Af­ter a blind tast­ing of five Por­tuguese wines, each par­tic­i­pant can mix their own blend from three base wines and fin­ish the job with a per­son­alised la­bel. The cu­ri­ously named “wine stomp­ing” ses­sion is an­other group ac­tiv­ity, de­pend­ing on the time of year.
