Our food and wine journey starts with one of Northern Portugal’s most famous dishes, the Bifana, a small sandwich consisting of a light and crusty bread roll filled with sautéed strips of pork which have been seasoned with garlic and marinated with a closely guarded recipe of spices for hours. To pair this flavorful dish we have chosen a fresh and effervescent white wine from Portugal’s most distinctive wine region, Vinho Verde.
Entering our second stop, we find ourselves in a traditional wine bodega surrounded by hundreds of Portuguese wines. Here we will taste an indigenous Douro Valley variety called Viosinho, a full-bodied but fresh, fragrant, well-balanced wine perfectly paired with a charcuterie board of locally sourced cheeses and cured meats.
Our third stop is another great local spot, known for its Alheira dish, a flavorful sausage made with meat, bread and spices. Our wine pairing here will consist of a powerful full-bodied red from one of Portugal’s most important wine regions, the Dão.
Continuing to our fourth stop, you will find yourself a typical family-style restaurant, known for its traditional Portuguese dishes. Here we’ll sample perfectly made Pataniscas de bacalhau, codfish fritters made with eggs battered flour, parsley, onions, and salt. We will pair it with a fresh and invigorating Alvarinho, a northern Portuguese grape that is irresistibly aromatic with hints of lemon zest twined with pear and white peach fruit.
As soon as we enter our next stop, you will understand why we love Portuguese wines so much. A beautiful modern tasting room where your personal sommelier will pick two outstanding wines for you to sample from Portugal’s best wine regions.
