Was interesting to learn how they age the wine in both barrels and also artificially by heating the wine in tanks. Heating it for 3 months at a warm temperature ...

    after visiting historic sites around Portugal over the last month.

    I got a late start on my arrival day in Funchal so only

    the potent spirit used ...

    ... her own stuff. Me? Not packing, but exploring the incredible gardens at the hotel. What a gorgeous area this hotel sits in. According to Marina, who was here 50 years ago with her mother, the gardens were three times larger, and there were no other hotels, or even a town to speak of.
