Quinta do Piloto is the inheritance of the winemaking tradition of four generations of the Cardoso family in Palmela.
Excellent event. From the folk music, to the grape crushing demo, and topping it all with the great food, great wine and atmosphere. We enjoyed it very much. Highly recommend. We will be back for sure
Wonderful. Highly recommended.
Thank you Raquel (and Helena for covering for Raquel) for the impromptu winery tour. We were very privileged to get a non- scheduled tour and will be forever grateful. We had the most fabulous afternoon visiting this winery.
We adored the wine and we absolutely loved and appreciated the whole experience....from the stories and photos of family trees and heritage and connections to the historic town festivities, to learning about the wine making traditions.... the original wine making processes and marvelling at the traditional methods still in use today... we saw original technique and set-up that were visionary at the time and remain fundamental masterpieces that produce exemplary wines still today. We thought it was a brave call to pull up at a winery with our 3 young children on our way south from Lisbon. But we were super spoilt with exposure to this way of life, farming/vineyards and we all enjoyed the very professional space set up for visitors. The children were very interested in the process from vine to bottle as Raquel was an exceptional host who held our interest and attention with all of her stories and information. They really appreciated being given a branch off a plum tree by a farmer/caretaker, where they must have eaten at least 8 wonderfully juicy ripe plums each, straight from the picking. A talented, passionate group of people where the love shines through in the product. Yummo! Well done Quinta do Piloto... amazing.
