Speaking of love

Where there is no wine there is no love.  Euripides. Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy. Benjamin Franklin. February is the month of love, and what pairs better with love and its celebration, than wine? Not much, to be honest. However, there are a few things that match perfectly with the amazing pair of love and wine: flowers, chocolate, the perfect surrounding, and, of course, the most special company! When we first started Wine With a View in the summer of 2014, at our flagship location at the Castle of S. Jorge, it had never crossed our minds that it would be just the perfect setting for all kinds of super romantic...

Traditions: Água-Pé

The água-pé is a typical Portuguese wine-like beverage that is traditionally served, along with chestnuts, on the Saint Martin’s day on the 11th November. The legend tells that, when the young Saint Martin (São Martinho in Portuguese) found a freezing homeless person, he promptly cut his cape in half and gave it you the man to warm him up. To celebrate this gesture, God created the brief Saint Martin’s summer every year around that day. And it is exactly in that short break of the cold autumn that the wine of that year’s harvest was ready to be opened. In Portuguese, there are even some popular sayings about this phenomenon: “No São Martinho, vai à adega e abre o vinho”...
