Vincent Considers a Wine Floozy From Portugal!

This month, we will talk about the wine that will get the prize of our favourite label if there were such a thing : Julia Florista from Vidigal wines in Portugal.

The Story :
Julia Florista (1883-1925) : Flower girl and spontaneous Fado singer, with a parochial and bohemian nature. Her songs echoed through the streets of old Lisbon, in taverns and houses of aristocrats. In spite of a short life, she left us in heritage, “The spirit of Fado”, engraved in two 78 rpm discs. Only 12 people attended her funeral – that’s Fado’s destiny !

The Company :
Vidigal Wines is a family run, medium size wine company that produces still and dessert wines.
Located in the centre of Portugal, near the city of Leiria, Vidigal was established in the beginning of the 20th Century in a winery founded by a Church Canon.
Throughout the last century the company had several owners. Acquired in the 90’s by the current Managing Director, António Mendes Lopes, Vidigal went through great management and technological advances that are now producing fruit ( no pun intenend ) allowing the winery to produce over 3 million bottles of wine annually.
Vidigal is owned by the Danish/Portuguese Managing Director António Mendes Lopes (60%) and by a Norwegian Investment Company (40%).
António Lopes has over 30 years of experience in the wine world. He founded a Wine Import company in Denmark, importing wines from many regions of the world, enabling him to build knowledge and expertise at a global level.
António Mendes Lopes actively participates in the process of wine making together with his two main oenologists: António Ventura (Portuguese Oenologist of the year 2006) and Rafael Neuparth.
In terms of production, Vidigal has partnerships in the area of Lisbon representing 1,112 acres of vineyards, as well as in other Portuguese wine regions: Tagus, Douro, Alentejo, Dão, Beiras and Vinho Verde.
The majority of wines Vidigal produces, in particular the ones from the region of Lisbon, originate from vineyards close to the Atlantic Ocean and as such the sea breeze has an influence on the wines produced, presenting us with a range of wines that are fresh and always very fruity.
The main grape varieties used by Vidigal are: Touriga Nacional, Aragonez (Tinta Roriz), Castelão, Syrah and Cabernet.

Dogs Always Welcome at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove

Here at Ben Tunnicliffe Sennen Cove we are big dog fans. There is no better time to be visiting the beach with your beloved four-legged friend than on a winter’s day. It is good for your soul to be down here on the beach or on the cost path having a brisk walk watching the rollers crashing onto the beach.
Before heading home warm up in front of our wood burner, with a comforting hot drink or something a little harder watching the world go by.
Great for the karma – unless it ends up eaten by your dogma 🙂

Come in Out of the Storm!

Sennen Cove is a small costal fishing village protected by a substantial breakwater built in 1908 right next to the RNLI lifeboat station. The Cove has clear water and being so far south the swell has the full weight and fetch of the almost the entire Atlantic. It is pounded by the sea to the west and bordered by the parishes of St Just to the north, St Buryan to the east and St Levan to the south.
The long stretch of golden sand at Sennen Cove beach is popular with families and surfers alike all year round. The winter months can be very special, watching the waves and storms out to sea is mesmerising, and listening to surge of the water as the huge granite boulders move like teeth grinding together. Very few places give such a sense of power and majesty of the ocean – a hugely evocative and humbling experience not to be forgotten. The restaurant is an ideal location to cosy up on the sofas storm watching with a hot drink and cake, or a nice glass of wine and hot Sunday Roast in front of the fire on a cold winter’s day.
We survived storm Brian and gave us the opportunity of some stunning images from restaurant.
