2015 March – Gérard and Catherine

DSC00662 When we have guests that are able to stay for an extended period of time, we benefit by having the time to get to know them and spend time doing something together which makes for a special visit.  Gérard and Catherine, of Rennes, France, were here for seven weeks and at the end we were very sorry to see them leave.  But knowing that they may very well be back to the Algarve made the sorrow a little less. Gérard is an avid golfer and played nearly every other day and sometimes several days in a row.  He and Greg had a few games together and enjoyed the varied weather conditions that can be expected during the spring time. During their visit we made a trip to a local winery, Quinta do Morgado de Torre, and discovered, not only Gérard and Catherine’s interest in wine, but their vast experience in tasting and knowing how to judge the different qualities of the wines in the fledgling Algarve wine market.  One adventure we shared was a visit to “The Wine Show” held in the Lagoa convention center where we discovered a number of local wines that met with everyone’s approval.  As an extension of “The Show,” we visited another local winery where we bought some of their select vintage: Quinta Monte de Salicos. Wine and golf … what a holiday!
