Wine Tour

at Casa de Algar

The family has been producing wine for over a 100 years. They pioneered white wine in a region where red Vinho Verde was considered tradition. Nowadays, under the brand Pata da Burra, they mainly produce white Vinho Verde wines. If you wish, they will open their doors for you and offer you a tour around in the vineyard, inform you about their winemaking process and of course, let you taste a selection of their wines. Casa de Algar is a 10 minute ride from our Quinta.
