“… a tour of the hilly, magical Alentejo, and with it, some of the very best eating and drinking of my life”.
I enjoyed this article on Portugal A LAND FINELY AGED LIKE WINE as seen by Eli Gottlieb an author and writer for the New York Times.

It’s surprising to me to feel a surge of pride at seeing my newly adopted country acknowledged so glowingly in one of the world’s best newspapers. I think this place is growing on me. Not surprising really, it is a wonderful country full of pleasant surprises.
