Authentic Setúbal Portugal
do something good for your body so that the soul feels like living in it – Teresa of Avila
A five-day authentic-culinary journey into the wild-romantic, maritime landscape around the port city and peninsula of Setúbal in the southern Estremadura, the southwest of Portugal.
Our “Wine & Food Camp” – based in a private, authentic Finca with 6 double rooms with ensuite bathroom/toilet – is located to the north of the estuary of Sado which flows into the Atlantic Ocean in the peaceful solitude near to the village of Poceirao, 20 minutes by car from the picturesque port city of Setubal and the Arrábida Nature Reserve, 40 minutes by car from Lisbon airport.
Southern Portuguese lifestyle in culinary lockdown.
Experience passionate market tours at the lively and colourful “Mercado do Livramento” in Setúbal. A legendary trading-point for freshly caught fish & seafood as well as regional meat, poultry, and vegetable specialties. On the beach and on the grounds of our private Finca, we stage hedonistic seafood feasts with lobsters, langoustines, shrimps, sea spiders, mussels, and snails and celebrate open log fires by the Finca pool, along with authentic Portuguese fish, meat, and vegetables from the region.
At the pool-side-grill, we prepare everything from fresh tuna, sardines, and sea bream to rabbits, lamb, and country chicken to juicy entrecôtes of Portuguese cattle. Artichokes, salad hearts, and much more! (…just to mention some of the various greens too!)
With our own boat, we not only go swimming and enjoy an opulent picnic on the Atlantic, but we also sail “far out” to regional fishing grounds before sunrise, deep-sea fishing for sea bream, red snappers, and mackerel .
In the wooden barrel cellar of the “Quinta da Invejosa”, Filipe Palhoca’s family winery in the third generation, we taste the traditional grape varieties of the region “Peninsula de Setubal” and “DOC Palmela” such as Castelao, Touriga Nacional, Fernao Pires, Arinto, Syria and the traditional specialty Moscatel Roxo. We also take in interpretations of international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Shiraz to accompany our authentic culinary extravagances.
Always with you and “on board”, a wide selection of regional wine specialties, ice-cold Portuguese beer, a selection of fine gins, tonic, and water.
All content and services described above are without exception included in the “all-inclusive” price of the trip.
This journey is accompanied and staged by the international “wine & food Edutainer” Roland Birr (oenologist).
