One of the main things that I wanted to do in Lisbon was to taste the food in Portugal and to find out more about the place, so I went looking for a tour online that would provide me with a guided exploration of Portuguese Gourmet Food, Wine and the place itself. I found a Food, Wine and a Walking Tour with a company called Inside Lisbon Tours online for a reasonable price of about USD55.
We met our guide, Pedro, at the base of the statue of Pedro IV in Praça D. Pedro IV. Our tour group of about 8 was from all over the world. Read more
Recently I had a chance to visit Lisbon Portugal, a place that I have wanted to visit for a long time, have always heard great things about the place. To be honest it was even better than I expected. Friendly people, great architecture, history plus amazing food and wine, what more can you ask for!
Another McLaren Vale winery that I recently visited was Chapel Hill Wine. Chapel Hill Wines were probably one of the first wineries from McLaren Vale South Australia that most people would have tried, they have usually produced decent to good wines and so are a safe bet for a barbeque or Dinner with the family.
Recently I had the opportunity to visit Mollydooker Wines Cellar Door in McLaren Vale South Australia and what a great visit it was. Whilst not all of the wines were great the way that our wine tasting was organised and conducted was excellent. The only thing you could ask for to improve the experience was to taste Mollydooker Wines’ Velvet Glove, which I am sure we might have gotten lucky with if we had more time.
Does anyone know where the name Mollydooker comes? The answer is at the end of this post.
