Port Wine

Port Wine is a sweet, fortified wine produced exclusively in the Douro Valley  in the northern province  of Portugal.

The wine received its name, “port”, in the latter half of the 17th century from the  seaport  city of Porto  at the mouth of the Douro River, where much of the product was brought to market or for export to other countries in Europe.

Tip: you can always use Port Wine like a Fruit salad dressing. Just add some drops and  ready to eat.

Summer in Arrabida

This is one of the best Coasts in Portugal (in my opinion). And, the fact that the area has my local beaches, doesn’t mean I’m buyist.

Galapos, is one of many beautiful beaches nestled in the bay at the foot of the Arrabida mountains. Arrabida has been a protected national park since 1976 and is located in the Setubal region.
