Quinta de Santa Cristina is a wine producing estate in Vinho Verde, and one of the most innovating and forward-looking wine estates in Portugal, providing a wide range of wine-related activities that can't be seen anywhere else in the country.

Wine Tourism in Portugal talked with Liliana Pereira, the person in charge of the wine tourism department at Quinta de Santa Cristina, which shared her view on the estate, what makes it so different and attractive from people all over the world and some great stories she had the chance to experience throughout the years.

Carmo's Boutique Hotel, an Authentic Experience by Nelson Carvalheiro

Posted by Nelson Carvalheiro on 13-Oct-2015 16:20:00

Carmo’s Boutique Hotel is located in a very rural area of northern Portugal, 5 km from Ponte de Lima. The warm hospitality of the people in this region is well known and their "back to Portuguese roots" way of welcoming guests is something I’ve always appreciated. The hotel was nominated in 2013 by the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler as one of the best new hotels in the world. With all this in mind I gladly spent a sunny weekend at the end of winter at Carmos Boutique Hotel.
