Azores: Wine Tasting
Europe's Best Kept Secret
The Azores archipelago has some decent wines from around Portugal and its own varieties such as Verdelho dos Acores and vinho de cheiro, a “morangueiro”, which has a slight strawberry-like fragrance. Recommended wine tasting locations in the Azores include Biscoitos Wine Museum at Praia da Vitória on the island of Terceira for wine tasting in a beautiful, traditional setting. The island of Pico is the main wine producer in the Azores, and has a wine museum as well as several lovely terraced vineyards dating from the 1500s.
