O Morgado do Quintao opens, on the 9th and 10th of October, the doors of its farm in Lagoa for the first edition of Harfeast, a weekend celebrating the end of the harvest.
This event, which will not lack good wines, gastronomy with a focus on local products, live music and good conversation, is the result of the desire to share what has already been achieved at Morgado do Quintão, since the first harvest in 2016, a unique project dedicated to regeneration and dynamization of the genuinely Algarve wine.
The farm gates open at 17 pm on Saturday 9, for a night that begins at sunset over the Monchique mountains. While preparing an Iberian pig on a skewer, created in a 100% natural way by the Algarve project Made in Zambujal, take the stage Tomás Cunha Ferreira & Branca, a father and daughter musical duo, deeply inspired by Stevie Wonder, Stevie Nick and Rita Lee. . Palhete '19 (Crato Branco & Negramole), an iconic wine from Morgado do Quintão, will be the vintage served to accompany the evening's festivities.
On Sunday, under a 2.000-year-old olive tree, the award-winning chef André Fernandes, from the Attla restaurant (Lisbon), will prepare a special lunch. The creations of the young Chef, who has worked with Michelin chefs such as the illustrious Alain Ducasse, will be paired with the award-winning wines of Morgado do Quintão. After lunch, everyone will be invited to participate in a vintage celebration, lasting about 15 minutes, for the production of a first of the product, the new “Colheita Tardia 2021”.
“Both our community and our legacy are important to us. After 5 years we think the time has come to celebrate what we've done so far. That's why we created Harfeast, our end of harvest event, where we intend to bring together our community and all those who helped us take the our work at Morgado do Quintao, and all food and wine lovers”, explains Filipe Caldas de Vasconcellos, guardian of the farm.
