The Pico Island wines, grown from volcanic soil, are known for their high quality. Discover how and where they are made by visiting the island's vineyards and wineries.
Pico Island Wine Tour
We'll start this wine tour around Pico Island by heading from your hotel to the inland town of Criação Velha, famous for being nestled in wine-growing surroundings. This agricultural area is so pretty that it has even been named a World Heritage Site. Without doubt one of the natural gems of the Azores Islands!
Our route will continue to Madalena. On the outskirts of this city- the island's capital- the Wine Museum can be found. We'll visit its vineyards, winepresses and other facilities in order to learn about the process of making these wonderful wines.
Not only will we find out about how the wines are made, but we'll also enjoy a local wine tasting in a nearby cooperative. After the tasting, we'll make our way to the northern coast, passing through the small towns of Cachorro and Lajido. Following our route to the north of Pico, we'll reach A Buraca: a traditional bodega where we'll get to taste their locally made liqueurs.
We'll replenish our energy with a traditional lunch in a local restaurant, and after eating head back to the hotels, passing through the outstanding inland scenery along the way.
Alcoholic drinks will only be served to people over the age of 18 years.
