If you’ve followed me over the years you’ll know I have a long time crush for Portugal and Portuguese wines. Every year, since about 7 years I’ve been to at least one edition of Adegga wine market. This is their 10th year running. If you haven’t been you should go! For dates keep an eye on their website their website or Facebook page.

For the winter market I keep a special eye open for the fortified wines, the classic wines and new projects. I.e. some wines for Christmas consumption and some for the future.Castle Adegga
