Last thursday we had a lecture and wine tasting in the Centro Ciência Viva de Lagos. The topic was the benefits of organic wine for the environment and for a healthy diet.
Would be difficult to have a better late afternoon, for those who attended the
lecture and tasted the organic wines with Guillaume Leroux of Monte da Casteleja.
We thank Centro de Ciência Viva de Lagos for the excellent initiative, the photos and the kind words.
Next weekend Monte da Casteleja is going to Lisbon to the National Fair of Organic Farming – Terra Sã Lisboa 2015 (5 and 6 of December), Pátio da Galé, in Terreiro do Paço.

Another big party on Monte da Casteleja, with the completion of the 12th Harvest.
Sharing unique moments of joy…. and a lot of sweat to the mix ….
A very special thanks to my children and colleagues, Susana, Tiago, the cook Carla and woofer Marta, for the precious help in organizing and preparing this important event.
The grapes were harvested at the right time and the wine is fermenting in the cellar; expectations for this crop are running high!
Monte da Casteleja was present with Lagos Municipality in the International Tourism Fair of Lisbon – BTL (considered the largest tourism fair in Portugal), which took place between February 25 and March 01 in the Park of Nations.
This tourism promotion was held under the Association of Municipalities “Terras do Infante” (Lagos, Aljezur and Vila do Bispo), integrated in the “Algarve Space” that linked the Tourism Region of the Algarve and all the Algarve municipalities.
On Saturday, February 28, was scheduled a tasting of local products, called “Lagos and the Sea”, which had a strong turnout and was a success. We introduced Monte da Casteleja and gave wines tasting with local oysters from OstraSelect Algarve company.
The delicious oysters from Ria de Alvor were perfectly married with our wine Monte da Casteleja White 2013… truly enjoyed by dozens of people.
This initiative by Lagos Municipality is to be praised as it shows the way forward: to promote and enhance the good local produce.
Monte da Casteleja went to Lisbon to promote and give a taste of our wines in various projects related to Christmas, a full weekend for the wines of Casteleja.
The presentation in Miosotis was a success! It was excellent for promotion and sales. It’s great to come back to see old friends and many fans of our wines.
On Saturday (December 6) was the presentation of Al Cabaz (Basket) in Lisbon at the Feira das Almas (Fair of Souls) in Regueirão dos Anjos. It’s an initiative from Rede Cooperar that is worth supporting. A basket full of high quality craft products that naturally includes our wine.
Our wine also reached the Bairro Alto. The Christmas Bazaar in the Arquivo 237 on the street Rosa opened doors last Saturday. The bottles of Monte Casteleja shined even brighter, among unique pieces of Portuguese and foreign designers.
