Antonio in an act of amazing generosity had his brother deliver a bottle of wine to us. It was produced on their family farm and was casked in wooden barrels in 1890. This was then bottled 40 years ago. So the 120 year old wine was opened this evening and that in itself was a fantastic treat. The result is a wine of light golden colour, with the aroma of port, yet an ever so soft and smooth touch on the palate. It delivers several flavours in sequence and finishes with a light cognac taste. Thank you to Antonio and Josef for a fantastic greeting to Portugal and some great memories.
Have we been here too long?
On our 5th day at Peniche we woke up to find we were the only visitors left
