A WINE TASTING STROLLING AROUND THE GREAT VOLCANO THAT IS THE MOUNTAIN OF PICO!

Come walk with us around the great volcano that is Pico Mountain! On this unparalleled adventure, you can explore magnificent landscapes and discover hidden natural treasures on the island of Pico in the Azores. Along the route between São Mateus and Bandeiras, you will have the opportunity to appreciate the incredible old vineyards of Criação Velha, which have a fascinating history and produce world-renowned wines.

As you start the walk in São Mateus, you will find a picturesque coastal village with Portuguese cobbled streets and traditional stone houses. As you walk towards the mountain, you will be greeted by a lush landscape filled with lush vegetation. Pico mountain, with its imposing and majestic shape, will always be present on the horizon, inspiring awe and respect. As you approach Criação Velha, ancient vineyards begin to appear, scattered across the black slopes of the mountain. These vineyards have a centenary history, dating back to the time when the first settlers arrived on the island of Pico. The stone walls that surround the vineyards are silent witnesses to the hard work and dedication of the local farmers, who have worked hard to create a unique and productive landscape.

While strolling among the vineyards, you can learn more about the process of growing and producing wine in Pico. The Verdelho grape, one of the most widely grown grape varieties in the region, is known for its exceptional quality and is used in the production of full-bodied and aromatic white wines. The volcanic soils give Pico wines a distinctive character, rich in unique flavours and aromas.

Besides the vineyards, the surrounding landscape is also stunning. The steep cliffs and rock formations carved by volcanic force provide a stunning backdrop. As you progress along the walk, you can catch sight of the turquoise sea and neighbouring islands, making for a truly unforgettable experience.

Arriving in Bandeiras, a charming village at the foot of the mountain, you will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy a traditional Azorean meal. Try the local dishes, such as the famous Furnas stew or the stewed octopus, accompanied by a glass of Pico wine, of course! On your return to São Mateus, you can reflect on the beauty and grandeur of Pico mountain and the ancient vineyards of Criação Velha. This tour provides an immersive experience in the nature and culture of Pico island, allowing you to appreciate the natural and historical heritage of this unique region.

The loop around Pico Mountain, between São Mateus and Bandeiras, is a fascinating journey that combines stunning landscapes, ancient vineyards and a rich history. Come unravel this magnificent volcano and discover the charms that Pico Island has to offer.
