Azores: Wine Tasting

Europe's Best Kept Secret

Azores Wine Tasting

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.
