Tourists can taste the drink buried for months in Quinta do Olivardo
This Saturday, 19/12, Olivardo's farm brings a different attraction to tourists visiting the region: the tasting of the "wine of the dead". During the dinner, drink lovers can enjoy the wine to the sound of traditional Portuguese fado, Sung by Chita Marinho.
The wine tradition of the dead arose in 1807, in the midst of the Peninsular War, during the invasion of the French troops in Trás os Montes and Beira Alta, Portugal. Tells the story that the invaders pillaged the towns, taking food and drinks.
To avoid the sack, some families started to bury its production of wines among the pastures, and plantations under the cellars. However, what no one imagined is that it could interfere with the taste, leaving the drink even more tasty.
