After a tour through the Douro where we visited several of our partners in the region, we headed south, to the city of Estremoz, for a visit to the Alentejo producer Howard’s Folly. We were able to witness the work being carried out by the duo formed by the English businessman Howard Bilton and the acclaimed Australian winemaker David Baverstock.
We met the space dedicated to wine tourism with a wine shop and an exhibition of various artworks from Howard Bilton’s private collection, the cellar and the already famous restaurant led by chef Hugo Bernardo.
The vineyards where Howard’s Folly wines are born are located on the outskirts of Portalegre. We tasted the most recent vintages, and it was possible to prove a balance between the Alentejo character and an enormous elegance that makes us more and more excited to be able to work on this project.
