Half a day in Obidos.

Óbidos is one of Portugal´s top tourist attractions. Two whites to taste: in front white Estremadura from the local Cooperativa de Óbidos producer and white vinho verde from the Northern Portugal.


On our way to Quinta de Chocapalha we stepped in for a couple of hours to the small town of Óbidos. Óbidos is one of Portugal´s top tourist attractions. At this time of the year we expected to find hordes of tourists occupying every inch of that small town. To our surprise the village was quite and charming. "30% less tourists this year" a lady serving us food at Real Taverna restaurant told us. We liked that very much.
So we found a small table at the restaurant and tasted two couples of wine: white Estremadura from the
local Cooperativa de Óbidos producer which had a fine yellowish color and turned out to be also very nice in mouth and compared it to simple couple of white vinho verde from the Northern Portugal.
What a nice lunch we had !
