The Lisbon wine region formerly known as the Estramadura region is one of much interest as it is very diverse in landscapes and just as divers in the types of wines produced in the region. This article is about one of the older houses close to the city in an area that is slowly being gobbled up by urbanization and land values have increased to the point where wine making is becoming less lubricative and farms are vanishing being taking over by high rise buildings, commercial centers and modern housing more fitting to the current demands.

Quinta das Carrafouchas is located in Loures just north of Lisbon in the more mountainous landscapes of the Lisbon district.

The wines of the Quinta das Carrafouchas

Quinta das Carrafouchas is a family run estate with a small production of excellent wines produced according to traditional methods. The grapes for instance are still stomped by foot. Another unique aspect is the harvest, which is slightly earlier than in other parts of the country due to this areas particular micro-climate.

There is no documentation that allows us to retrace the history of Casa das Carrafouchas, built at the beginning of the 18th century.
On April 8, 1879, the property was bought from the Marquês de Valada by Joaquim Franco Cannas, staying in his family up to this day. It currently belongs to D. Maria Veneranda Cannas Henriques da Silva.

Quinta das Carrafouchas facade

This site is a beautiful example of the construction that can be found in both the North and the South of Portugal. In this type of house, built according to a frontal design, the carefully designed façade develops in the length direction. The three distinct elements, consisting of the chapel, the residence and the courtyard wall, enclosed by an armored portal, are integrated therein into one and the same set. The chapel occupying the end of the facade.

The chapel dates to 1714 and is a typical example of Portuguese architecture. The chapel, on the one of the dwelling. Dedicated to Nossa Senhora do Monte do Carmo, this place of prayer is a true jewel, where, in association with the Portuguese, golden carvings, polychrome marble inlays, red and gold frescoes, and blue and white tiles are found. The set is however very homogeneous, thanks to the two-dimensional but very dynamic leitmotiv formed by foliage windings and scrolls.

Quinta das Carrafouchas chapel scene

Like the chapel, the courtyard is a privileged space, the astounding geometric design of the black and white stonework and refreshed by the existence of a fountain. The terrace that dominates it was decorated after the chapel, around 1740, with three monumental panels of tiles, representing scenes of hunting, in the style of Bartolomeu Antunes. There, knights and mounted chasing the bull, the deer and the boar.

The courtyard guards

The garden holds us a new surprise, with its large fountain, attached to three walls of a white and ocher-edged, overlaid with bulbs, pinnacles that have no vague Arabic reminiscences. Here the tiles serve to frame architecturally-minded niches of broad baroque enclosures which, above the stone benches, frame graceful allegorical figures representing the Four Seasons.

The courtyard with tiles depicting the hunting scenes of the time

Licensed since 1932, it was only after 1954 that it began to produce white wine, which was sold in bulk. It is the private vineyard closest to the center of Lisbon.

Mindfulness Portugal, Mindful team building for groups and events

Mindfulness as a practice has been gaining ground in the US and Europe.
Used as a solution in hospitals, prisons, by corporations and in schools.
Practitioners claim it benefits health, communication skills, individual happiness and personal compassion.

Mindfulness doesn’t come with dogma

Mindfulness originated from Buddhist practices and meditation but it is not a religion, not a strict regime or something using complicated methods. It is a set of simple exercises that relax and help concentration. The key to Mindfulness is living your life as if it really matters. Mindfulness in travel can create a much stronger sense of peace and enjoyment. The core idea of Mindfulness practice is to reconstruct thoughts by emptying your mind.

Portugal and mindfulness

Portugal could be considered one of the better locations for practicing and learning mindfulness. Life in Portugal is relaxing, the landscape magnificent and the climate warm.

How can mindfulness benefit your corporate team

To understand how mindfulness can benefit your team we need to return to the core idea of reconstructing thought. To understand “thoughts” we need to understand the processes behind thoughts. A thought in its purest sense will tell you when your hungry, when your tired, when your thirsty. They will help you analyze and prevent danger, benefit the making of proper assessments and develop strategies and solutions.

Humans use thoughts in every voluntary aspect of their being and without them we could not function either ate home or in the workplace.

mindfulness guide to accompany the workshops

Certain aspects of life can upset our thoughts to an extend were they start to work against us. Some of these aspects can be addiction, stress and anxiety, past failures or fears, pressure from piers or coworkers amongst others.

In any high paced corporative environment stress and anxiety at work can be a main factor for the failing of teams, employees and managers. The thought patterns created by stress and anxiety are seldom “true” and generally “negative”. These thoughts reduce productivity, team spirit and development in any environment but can be particularly destructive at work where people, who did not choose each other, are expected to work together towards a common goal, which is the goal of the corporation. A team is only a team when it is composed of members capable of assessing and utiliz the talents and capabilities of both themselves and the other members of the team.

A few examples of negative thought processes and how they upset natural processes

If you have dealt with addiction of any type you will understand quite fast how negative thought processes work. Each smoker, drinker, food junkie understands that the habit is bad for them and each plans their ending of the habit until they manage or give up. What happens in the brain is quite interesting a smoker will tell you how good they feel when they smoke. Each drinker cant wait for his first glass. The craving for chocolate or the next meal gives a feeling of panic followed by comfort when it is met. However each and everyone of these will quite often feels guilt and remorse after this indulgent. In some cases shame may play a part.

The conscious thought process is telling this person the truth. The substance taken is unhealthy both physically and mentally. The mind knows well what the body needs. Their is no real enjoyment in smoking, overeating or any other excess. Due to negative thought processes brought on by addictions, fear, bad past influences and association, “thought” are telling this person they need this substance, thoughts are saying come on let s do this one more time! Thoughts are being liars that work against you.

How can individual stress work against the corporation

Individual stress can fully demobilize an organization. Workers are more often ill, unable to grow their talents and move a corporation further, unable to cooperate within, what might to them, as an alien team.
When people at work are not fully balanced, the thought process can cause them to concentrate not on what its about but to get involved in blind individual ambition or they loose partial or complete interest in their jobs, their managers and their coworkers. Sometimes too much stress can create a negativity that flows through a team like a fast spreading disease that will eventually kill a corporation. Replacing a team will not solve this problem curbing the cause will.

Mindfulness by itself should not be the solution however it can be the foundation needed to built large and functional solutions.

Who is using mindfulness in the workplace? Many corporations are using mindfulness in the workplace to better processes and employee health. Some of these are Google, Facebook, Intell, Goldmann Sachs, Apple, Prentice Hall publishing, Nike, Aol, Yahoo, Deutsche bank, Proctor & Gamble.

How to integrate Mindfulness training into your event in Portugal

It can be a short first introduction to corporate Mindfulness or an extended custom made package for your group with a coach who understands your business and can create a package fitting to your problem or goals.

Discovering the Wines of Evora, Alentejo

Evora wines article

Evora is an ancient city set in the vast and peaceful landscapes of Alentejo. The city famous for its many monuments and gastronomy is no less famous for its local Alentejo wines.

This article is about 2 impressive and in their individual way unique wine farms in the landscapes surrounding Evora. The first is the Herdade do Esporão located 40KM South East of Evora in the equally famous area of Monsaraz. The second is the Monte da Ravasqueira, 30 KM North of Evora. 2 very different wine producers but each with a unique approach and offer to its visitors.

Herdade do Esporao

Herdade do Esporao, Wine estate, Monsaraz, Evora

 Herdade do Esporão innovation in wine making

Herdade do Esporão considers itself a project and their main aim is to create wines and products that serve society. They have been producing wines for 40 years and their motto is nature. The ideology behind the Herdade do Esporão wines is as impressive, if not even more, as the estate and the wines it produces. Nature, natural materials, processes and techniques.

Everything about this estate will amaze you. The vastness and beauty of the landscape are just secondary aspects. The herdade has over 700 Hectares of vineyards, olive groves and other crops which are all grown organically using old methods and innovative new methods for keeping out diseases and pests that may attack the produce.

Herdade do Esporao, organic processes

Herdade do Esporao, Vineyards protected with natural processes

New ways and old ways to create sustainable produce that serve society and protect nature

On a tour of this estate you will notice little details that you may not immediately recognize as functional additions to the landscape. For instance each row of vines is headed by a rose, this certainly looks pretty and you may think this is for aesthetic reasons however these roses have a very important function in the growing of the grapes as they are the protectors against diseases that would potentially be disastrous for the vines. They are the first to catch any disease that may try to enter the vines acting as an alarm system and body guard all at once. Between the vines you may notice, what looks like, wild growth of beans called favas. These as the roses are intentionally planted as they provide nourishment for the earth.

Amphora wines at Herdade do Esporao

Wines produced using natural processes introduced by the Romans

Once inside the winery you will be no less amazed. The buildings have been constructed using a  typical old Alentejo process of rammed earth or Taipa, in which clay, earth and other local elements are compacted, this though labour intensive is a sustainable ecological way of construction that is regaining popularity.

Some of the wines at the Herdade do Esporao are produced according to an ancient process introduced to Portugal by the Romans. This process involves large clay Amphorae or as they are called in Alentejo, Talhas, in which the wines are vinified. In this porcess olive oil is used to seal the wine from outside influence while the vinification takes place.

Gastronomy to compliment the wines

Traditional Sailing on the Tagus river, Lisbon

Traditional Sailing on the Tagus river, an old experience brought back to life!

Sailing boats called Canoa were once the most common scene on the Tagus river and the waterside of Lisbon. Once the waters  were filled with these traditional sailing boats and their skippers called Frigateiros.

These boats provided transport for the people and goods and were the vessels used for fishing and trade.

Lisbon was originally a fishing village. It is a city strategically placed on the Tagus river just before the river reaches its final destination in the Atlantic ocean.

In Lisbon the water is already salty but its not yet considered the sea, the river, as it enters the sea, is in an area where sea fish and river species coexist.
Its richness of fish gave rise to a settlement of the fishermen long before Lisbon became the capital of the discoveries and the most important port of Portugal.

The Tagus being a vast river and the longest in the Iberian peninsula became an important part in both transport and trade, providing the fastest means of transportation between many strategic cities in both Portugal and Spain gave rise to the development of a specific type of sailing boat designed to conquer the river and ultimately suited for fishing and transfers in a safe and sturdy vessel named the Canoa.

Not long ago the typical sailing boat, called the Canoa was the most common vessel on the river in Lisbon and one used regularly by the largest part of the population in daily life.

The boats specifically designed for the river they belong to, the Tagus.
These boats had many advantages over other boats some of which are still relevant to this day.
First of all their specific design makes its easy to embark but other than that they are almost flat a the bottom meaning they can get right to the shore.

The center of gravity is much better distributed than in modern sailing boats, again because of the undeep kill and the fact that the deck is at water level, the boat is build out of wood and the kill is almost flat and all these aspects make it virtually impossible to capsize and even if the boat would fill for 3/4 full of water it will still not sink!

This boat can, when wished, often be faster than our modern sailing boats.

They are ultimately suitable for people of all ages to use as a means of transport accompanied by the professional Fragateiro or Canoa skipper.

The Canoa can dock at places where no other boat can making it easy to drop people at their locations in Lisbon on or the opposite side of the river. It was deigned to support this as its use was often for transport.

Pulling into the harbour at Praca do Commercio, Canoa sailing, Lisboa

The Canoa sailing boats are low placed in the water giving direct contact with the waves and the river. This provides them with much stability and heightens the joy of sailing in one

Their low placement in the water and their design make it virtually impossible to capsize the boats.
This gves the boats the possibility to go out in rougher weather.
Made for the Tagus, these wooden boats made priced possessions appreciated by all who lived or traveled to Lisbon.

Sadly our modern innovations, the curb on fishing and newer demands almost wiped all these boats from the river views.

In late years much has been done to recover this cultural and historical aspect of Lisbon and though not used anymore in the old sense boats have been recovered and are on show at various locations in Lisbon.

Sailing tours build on nostalgia and passion for a culture and history of Lisbon almost lost

2 schoolteachers, Luis Filipe and Ricardo Conduto, both from fishing family backgrounds, joined forces to bring these boats back to the city scene and after having build a replica and recovering an original boat have managed to bring these gorgeous boats back to the waters and into the lifes of people. Hand painted in original colors, these boats add a touch of nostalgia to the Lisbon harbors.Surrounded by the large modern fleets that inhabit the Tagus these boats still manage to compete and conquer the Tagus waters with an experienced and elite dignity. Being the only boats that can actually dock at places like the Praca do Commercio, some of the islands and many other location not accesible by other boats, these boats will introduce to you the real Lisbon as it once was not so long ago!

Canoa tours, Fragateiro

What makes these sailing tours so unique and pleasurable for tourism and leisure

Some of the reasons why these sailing tours are so unique and pleasurable have already been mentioned. The best parts are, The deck at water level gives the passengers close contact with the water and waves much more than the modern boats allow making this a unique and fun experience. Kids will touch the water and enjoy the waves but grown ups might suddenly find themselves doing the same.
The deep positioning also provides a strong feeling of stability, especially noticeable in rougher water.

The views are the best, sailing closer than other boats can get really gives a feeling of Lisbon’s history and original function. Its a city that lived on the waters and from the waters.

The fact that the boats can dock in many places inaccessible to the other boats make them very useful for a real discovery of Lisbon and the many sites seen best from the water and accessible on land.
The heavy wooden boats provide a strong feeling of safety even on rough water days and they are actually excellent vessels even for sporting and regattas.

Other than the boats technical capacities, they are also spacious and perfect for lounging, relaxing, communicating and doing what the Portuguese enjoy most and what many would have done during a river crossing or an island trip, eating and drinking traditional foods, barbecuing freshly caught fish and enjoying the silence and views while on transit away from the city bustle!

Culinary experiments in outdoor eating Lisbon!

Portugal is best known for its traditional, standard, inexpensive gastronomy offer, grilled or boiled inexpensive meats or fish, some oven dishes and various versions of the famous salted cod is what you will find on most restaurant menu’s. Considering that Portugal is mostly known for its farming and fishing background, its rural societies, old cities and the recent crisis  has led many people to forget or just be unfamiliar with the fact that Portugal has a rich and diverse heritage.

It was the land of kings, queens, knights and  royalty, of many mixed cultures and it was once a colonizer of great importance.

It was a favorite place for European royalty to holiday and retreat over many centuries based on its fantastic locations, landscapes, beauty and climate.
Over the centuries it was inhabited by the Celts, the Phoenicians, the Lusitanians, The Romans and the Moors and other lesser known societies, all have left their mark on the land.

This diversity made it a country with influences of many religions and cultural backgrounds as far back as we can go in the studies of history.
All of these aspects have resulted in a substantial culinary and wine traditions not very known (yet) on an international scale.

A country in crisis is often visited by others looking for cheaper warm weather options and those who visit may leave with little understanding of the more luxurious Portugal or the real Portuguese culinary traditions. Recovery from the recent crisis has brought rise to new innovations and reestablishment of older traditions.

 

Lisbon a city that has been booming  with tourism and innovation and more and more companies are finding ways to show the authentic Portuguese dining culture to the people visiting the country.

So this article is all about the Portuguese gastronomy of the finer sort, not the grilled fish served with chips and white rice accompanied by a standard table wine catered for the masses, Which very often very good is mostly created to provide low priced budget options.

No this is more about luxury travel, aged cheeses handmade combined with processes almost forgotten, great wines that are winning prices worldwide. Habits and traditions for special days, enjoyed by many in the privacy of their homes or outside in public areas not often visited by tourists. The real Portugal a land of rich traditions and amazing heritage were food and wine are a major leisure activity  and a serious ritual all about balance, taste and nutrition.

Food in Portugal is a social occasion often enjoyed with the best views in company of best friends and relatives and whenever the weather is good enough, enjoyed outdoors!

So what kind of foods are unique to Portugal?

Certain types of bread, DOP cheeses, fish dishes and conservatives, cured meats, beans, wines, fortified wines, Local vegetables, pastries, fruits,

So where do you taste this real Portuguese foods? There are many restaurants providing these miraculous experiences and if you need us to help you find one for your group please contact us, however this article is about discovering the food as a Portuguese out and about on the waters, in the parks or on its beaches, in some food lovers home or kitchen, or doing something really typically Portuguese.

A real Portuguese food experience takes you out of the house and into a place of views and beauty, considered an important part in any celebration. Food and wine are considered social events that should be enjoyed in the company of family and friends and in the shade of a “parque de Merendas”, on the shores of a lake or the sea or in a beautiful garden or vineyard.

Where you choose to have your meal is as important as the dishes and wines served

Some of our best suggestions for being introduced to  this cultural aspect

Tapas and petiscos aboard a traditional sailing boat with or without a wine tasting of some of the better Portuguese wines.

Portugal was a land of discovery and fishing. With its large coastline and many internal lakes and rivers, much of the population from all classes and background spent much of their lives on the waters. Due to fishing, transport and colonization the Portuguese took to the waters for food, trade and expansion and this created a very specific gastronomy diverse and interesting.
Due to modernization of the fishing industry many of the characteristic hand painted fishing boats have vanished and been replaced by modern boats mostly to cater for the tourist industry.
In the last years some of the original boats have been recovered and thanks to an innovative company concentrating on the more luxurious side of Portuguese gastronomy and wine, these boats can be rented to Go Discover the Tagus river in Lisbon accompanied by great wines and local delicacies. An experience of open air tasting and celebration in the center of Lisbon away form the crowds and with the best views of the city from the water!

How fish and meat are grilled to perfection and accompanied by vegetables, salads and bread the Portuguese way. Are a unique and well kept secret only shared with those that will join this open and social event and become for one day completely Portuguese.
