After Sunday lunch with Joe Berardo, an invitation to visit his Quinta Bacalhôa. Built in 1480, if Portugal ever gets really serious about wine tourism, the rest of the world can pack up and visit Disneyland. Joe has a thing about gardens, which is clear in his sensitive restoration of the estate.
But Bacalhôa is far more than a living museum of wine. In 1969, the first Cabernet Sauvignon vines in Portugal were planted here and now winemaker Filipa Tomaz da Costa makes next level Bordeaux blends one hour south of Lisbon.
Neil, please ask Joe how he got all his loot out of South Africa – esp seeing he left in the heyday of Forex Controls. A man can learn from a guy as smart as this
I think e envy Filipa Tomaz da Costa and her villa and her wine
