It would be a mistake to leave the Algarve without having a taste (and testing your knowledge) of its best wines. In this popular tasting, we lay out six of the best Algarvian and Portuguese wines around our lovely tasting table or, weather permitting, al fresco.
This tasting is the perfect night out on the resort, as it’s hardly “just” a tasting. Join us in a game of trivia, with questions that will challenge your knowledge and your luck and make for a tasting unlike any other. We also perfectly pair the wide range of styles and types with several different local artisan products, from olives to cheese to chocolate.
In this tasting you will be surprised to learn the depth of tradition and knowledge in the crafting of Portuguese wine. Taste the history and the mimo that goes into its elaboration, and make some new friends in the process..
This relaxed yet informative tasting will satisfy the wine fan’s thirst for extensive knowledge of contemporary Spanish winemaking as well as the novice visitor interested in sampling some delicious drinks and well-paired food, all without leaving Pine Cliffs.
The minimum age for wine tastings is 18 years old.

Sabrina’s story in the Algarve begins with her mother and father, who fell in love in the Algarve in the 1970s. Her family has had a home in the Algarve since then, and she has spent every holiday since she was born in the Algarve—it’s her second home.
Born and raised in Germany, she studied Leisure and Tourism in the UK before returning permanently to Portugal. After studying Hotel Management, she worked as a travel agent specializing in the world of golf. Sabrina came to Mimo to follow her desire to be closer to the client, sharing her love of the Algarve one on one. In her spare time she loves to walk on the beach with her dog, reading, and discovering new restaurants with her friends.
