Da Silva Vineyards & Winery

Our first winery of the day was at Da Silva Vineyards & Winery.

They also have a tapas restaurant, The Kitchen Tapas + Wine, that overlooks the vineyard. It was fully booked when we dropped in.

We dropped in on a Saturday (with 12:00pm reservations). Service was great as our hostess gave us interesting details and a background on the winery.

Nice to see that they give credit on the bottles to where the grapes are grown.

Tasting fee is a non-refundable $10.00/person and includes 5 pours. Not going to lie; not a fan of seeing this. Click here to see their wine bottle prices (1 and 2).

2020 Vinho branco
DSC04531This blend was actually quite enjoyable.

2018 Chenin blanc
DSC04532This was our favourite of the bunch. Floral on the nose. Smooth and light.

We bought a bottle ($24.00) for home.

2020 Cor de rosa
DSC04533Smelled like strawberries. Notes of summery grapefruit.

2018 Pinot noir
DSC04534Surprisingly not too smokey but had a bit more tannins.

2017 Vinho tinto
DSC04535This was a bonus pour but we didn’t particularly enjoy this red blend.

2017 Cabernet franc

Da Silva had some decent wines but I’m more interested in coming back to try their tapas.
