I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Location: Setubal, Portugal

About: With the summer’s light slowly waning into a peaceful calm, I sat along the water and drank in the colors. A slight breeze brushed across my shins as I wrapped my ever so tight jacket across my then heaving pregnant belly. Butterflies occasionally fluttered past my shoulder, a wee fish raised a silent splash just below my feet, the flowers behind me waved a sweet hello as they danced back and forth in the wind. Setúbal…a stunning region in Portugal, famous for its vibrant fishing industry, dolphin colony, golden white beaches and lush natural parks, and of course, its fortified Moscatel wine. A worthy visit if you’ve never traveled here!
