Start where everything begins – the vineyard. Enjoy the vines of the Ramisco grape variety, enjoy a wine course, taste the local grape varieties, and experience the winemaking. At lunchtime, enjoy the “Leitão de Negrais” (suckling pig from Negrais). For dessert, visit one of the only three Queijadas de Sintra factories where you learn the history of the Queijadas (small cheesecakes) and other traditional Sintra sweets.
Enjoy visiting the “lota”, (Cascais’s fish market) where you can feel the colors and listen to the “pregões” (fishmongers sayings) while enjoying a snack of delicious “joaninha” (egg and almond sweet biscuit ) with a “bica” (espresso coffee). In Oeiras you can visit the vines of Carcavelos, who's white and red grapes give us the delightful king’s wine. This makes for a great pairing with local sweets such as “carcaveló” (sponge cake) or “queijadas de Oeiras” (chestnuts cupcakes).
