With this experience you will start with a tour of our vineyards and winemaking facilities. This will lead to our outdoor terrace with its panoramic view of the Minho River Valley. While enjoying the landscape you will taste some expressions of Alvarinho before heading to Quinta de Folga. At our smokehouse you will learn about our vineyards, herbal tea farms, and the long-standing tradition of producing smoked meats (Fumeiro) in Melgaço. This experience will finish in Quinta de Folga’s cosy dining room with a tasting of local delicacies.
At Quinta de Folga the focus is on Bísaro pig, a local breed, which we raise with ecological breeding. During this gastronomic experience we offer you the following selection of traditional smoked meats prepared from this breed: Salpicão (dry-cured smoked pork sausage), Chouriça de Sangue (smoked blood sausage), Chouriça de Carne (smoked pork sausage), and Alheira (smoked sausage made with pork and bread). The meats will be accompanied by our own homemade jams and vegetables from our organic garden. The experience would not be complete without a tasting of Soalheiro Alvarinho (Clássico), our most internationally recognized wine and a perfect complement for these local flavours.
