Gifts for wine lovers

Yes, this year’s Valentine’s Day is closer than you thought and you have nothing booked just yet. 

Do you feel uninspired? Do you feel that you can’t run into the perfect and meaningful gift? A great place to book a romantic dinner seems impossible to find?

Your search is over. Here are the ultimate romantic gift suggestions for Valentine’s Day 2020.

This Valentine’s day, go beyond the “flowers and chocolates”, offer a wine pairing experience of Port wine and chocolates in Portugal.

Well, if you or your soul mate are wine lovers, you probably heard about Portugal recently, If you visited us before you already know that Portugal has the most romantic places in Europe, and I just selected the top gifts for that special someone. These are 3 of my absolute favorite gifts for Valentine’s day:

 

Fado concert and Port Wine tasting experience at the wine cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia.

I got this question a lot: “What is Fado?”

Well, Fado has its roots in the African music and it has developed from it in Lisbon during the 1800s. Fado is a music genre, a symbol of Portugal and the Portuguese traditions. Fado is a heartfelt expression: Imagine a dim light ambiance, two guitars strumming and an unamplified voice singing songs of love and life. This is Fado in a Nutshell.  

This experience at Callém wine cellar as romance written all over it. A wine cellar tour ending in a Port wine tasting with a Fado show will certainly be memorable.
