O que você fará
When you arrive at theLAB, our custom drinks playground, we will begin an exploration of Portuguese natural, organic, and bio-dynamic wines from top to bottom. But not only that I’ll spend time getting to know you, what you like, what you want to learn about help then to customize your tasting to your areas of interest. With a fully stocked organic, bio-dynamic, and natural wine shop, and many special bottles saved for sharing I will make sure to give you a tasting that is 100 percent customized to your tastes, and one that you won't soon forget. During the tasting, you will have the chance to ask any questions you might have including where to drink in town? Where is the best place to buy wine? Tips for getting the best wine at dinner? We can even help you to tweak your time in Porto with tips on things to see and do that might be off the beaten path. At the end of the tasting, we'll leave you with the opportunity to buy the wines you tried, but more importantly, we'll leave you with the confidence to go out and explore Portuguese wines during your stay in Portugal. In total, you will taste at least 6 wines, but you never know, we often stray and can find ourselves exploring spirits, tea, coffee, even a beer if relevant to the discussion. Come explore Portuguese flavors with us!
