This gastronomic experience begins with a visit to the winery, finishing on our green terrace with a view over the Minho River Valley. Here you will pair the beauty of our Territory with a tasting of Soalheiro wine. Next, you will head to Quinta de Folga, where you will learn about our vineyards, herbal tea gardens, and the long-standing methods of producing traditional Fumeiro (smoked meats) from Melgaço. Your experience will finish with a three-course lunch of typical homemade dishes paired with different expressions of Alvarinho.

Bísaro pork, produced at Quinta de Folga, is the centre of this gastronomic experience. You will taste a variety of starters, all made from Bísaro, as well as a traditional pork steak paired with an exquisite wild rice. The meal will finish with coffee and homemade dessert. Each course is paired with one of our classic wines. Our Espumante Bruto Alvarinho was the first sparkling wine made following the traditional method using the Alvarinho varietal. Soalheiro Alvarinho (Clássico) is a brand icon and an enduring expression of Alvarinho. The Soalheiro 9% is the perfect complement to dessert with its striking balance between sweetness and acidity.
