Wine Tasting at an Award Winning Wine Cellar

Portugal has a number of high quality, award-winning wines and Ports. The Algarve in particular is Portugal’s southernmost region and an ideal spot for great wine-growing due to the number of sunny days per year – over 300!

In recent years there has been a resurgence of local wineries producing excellent wines that have received national and international acclaim. Guests at Figs on the Funcho are invited to taste a number of wines over lunch at  a local restaurant with an award winning wine cellar. During a 3-course traditional lunch, the sommelier will take you through 4 different wines, at least 2 from the Algarve region, and finish off with Port tasting. Don’t worry about driving as transport to and from the restaurant is all included.
