Join us for a wine tasting at the historic Solar Branco Eco Estate, above the town of Livramento. The area was known for growing wine grapes in the 1700s, before citrus took over in the 1800s. The estate still has its terraces on which the grapes were grown.
During the tasting, you will sample 3 white wines and 2 red wines from the Azores archipelago. The wines are all paired with local cheeses and savoury bites showcasing regional specialities. Each unique wine is handpicked from small independent producers, some producing less than 1,000 bottles each year. You’ll learn from your hosts about the history of wine in the Azores, its place in its culture, and how islanders have continued to grow grapes on this volcanic archipelago in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
The tasting takes place on the gin library terrace, where you will enjoy views of the countryside and Atlantic ocean. We welcome you to take a tour of the grounds of the estate, with a glass of wine in hand. We are perfectly located less than 10 minutes from the main city of Ponta Delgada. The heritage house sits on top of a hill, surrounded by farmland, overlooking the quaint town of Livramento and the ocean beyond.
About your host: Ali, is a passionate wine expert on Azorean wine. He will guide you through the unique wines that are grown here on the volcanic islands of the Azores.
Please note: This experience is only available for adults over eighteen.
