Tasting the fruit of the vine
One of our loveliest days on our recent Algarve visit took us to Quinta do Francês, on a wine-tasting tour. ‘Awful!’ I hear you exclaim. As the visit was a present from our son and partner, we felt duty bound to attend, and to sample the produce. It really was rather nice!
The winery is owned by French pathologist, Patrick Agostini, and the wines grown locally in the Odelouca River Valley. Our guide Tania was knowledgeable and interesting. We toured the machine room and the cellar, where barrels of new and aged oak are kept. And then, the tasting!
I could just fancy a glass… Six Words, of course! Debbie has cash in pocket and another brilliant six words this week. Don’t forget to join her. But first I would like to say a huge thank you to all of you who commented on What do you want from me? this week. The response was simply overwhelming. I guess I’ll carry on, doing what I do.
