Pestana Freixo Palace Hosts 15 Chefs and 70 Wines at Alivetaste24

Written By Manuel Poças

The Pestana Hotel Palácio do Freixo (Freixo Palace) will host the Alivetaste initiative once again this year offering amazing wines, products, and 15 Portuguese culinary chefs.

The Alivetaste initiative, a food and wine project created in 2016, is famous even on the international stage. It is seen as the perfect blend of culinary experiences, wine, and food products and is regarded as a hot spot for potential synergies between wine producers, chefs, and hoteliers.

This year, for the 8th edition, there will be 4 chefs with Michelin stars: Vasco Coelho Santos from Euskalduna, Arnaldo Azevedo from Vila Foz, Julian Montbabut from Le Monumental, and Luís Brito from A Ver Tavira. All 15 chefs will prepare incredible finger food with their special touch for all of those in attendance, which will then be paired with 70 wines from 35 different producers.

The event, which will take place on July 1st, from 5 pm to 10 pm, is open to the public. Tickets are currently being sold at 120 euros and will increase to 140 euros after June 16. It may seem a bit expensive, but these tickets will get you five hours of an experience that you wouldn’t be able to get even at Michelin starred restaurants.

Note that, apart from the food, the wine, the views, and the networking, participants may also be able to win prizes like special wines and tableware.
