Wine lovers' delight

 

The "cellar", actually a great barn of a building, of the Bacalhôa winery on the Setubal peninsula, south of Lisbon. The winery is somewhat unique in that the owner (José Manuel Rodrigues Berardo) is also an art collector who has worked in a number of countries, and he has exhibits of his collection in the winery.  A visit is pretty well a combined visit to an art gallery and a winery.

Art and wine, what a wonderful combination Tom
Tom Wilson: Difficult to beat!
A bit more impressive than my couple of bottles of Morrisons plonk and a Print of a Mick Shaw snap of me with Astrid and Mr Pig
Tom Wilson: Just a tad smile
A cellar lined up in military precision, the place looks spotless.
Tom Wilson: Wineries generally are scrupulously clean, Martin - to avoid any problems with the wine.
I would love the gallery part.
Tom Wilson: I'll have a pic or two from there smile
I like your framing Tom and I like the good wine also... Nice perspective
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Marie!
It must have been good if you felt the need to bring a couple of bottles back with you.
Tom Wilson: I'm always happy with Portuguese wines, Brian - the have the largest number of grape varieties anywhere in the world smile
