Over 40 members and friends of the St Patrick's Society boarded a coach to visit the Herdade de Paço de Conde Winery in Beja.
There, we were shown around the Winery and Paulo explained the wine-making procedure. Afterwards we tasted several red and white wines plus the olive oil from the Herdade. There were lots of cries of "Oh, I like that one, I will have another glass".
After placing our orders for wine and olive oil we then proceeded to a local restaurant for lunch, which was accompanied by some of the wines from the Winery.
After a delicious lunch we returned to the Winery to collect our purchases and head for home feeling very mellow and quite drowsy.
