The culture of Pico wine

Van Tour – Pico Wine Culture

Pico island

This is a story that started in the 15th century, with the early settlement, and continued through these successive rows of basaltic stone that cut the scenery, erected as pieces in an enchanting game.

Touring the south coast you will be able to reconstitute the adventure of the wine from the islands, once served at the Czars’ table. The narrative of how the culture adapted to the land and sought to shape nature, from the sea to the hills, is written in the bare soil of the island.

And the endemic vegetation and the surrounding sea frame it, adding details of original art.

    Die Erfahrung

    On Pico Island, an impressive maze of dry stone walls was created to protect vines.

    Come with us to discover the testimonies of this wine cycle.

    We tell you the secrets of the wine of Pico island in an experience full of history in the stunning wine landscape, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    • Lajes do Pico

      – Starting our tour in Lajes do Pico we will head along the South Coast in the direction of Madalena. During the first stop in São Mateus, you will discover the extension of vineyards.

      – You will also have an idea of how wine production changed over the years.

    • Along the coastline

      – Continuing along the coastline, we will discover built centers of adegas (little lava stone houses). Nowadays, they seem abandoned. Indeed, they only serve as weekend houses or for the production of the local table wine.

      –  Also, did you know that nearly every inhabitant produces for its own personal consumption?

    • Protected landscape of vineyards

      – In the protected landscape of vineyards, we will find tidal wells, distilleries, and wine presses. But also ancient warehouses, “Rola-pipas” (stone ramps) as well as “relheiras”. They are marks from the constant passage of oxcarts and manor houses.

      – At the end of this experience we will drop you back at Lajes.
