Wine lovers, get set for a night to remember… and join us in the engaging atmosphere of Le Grill Restaurant for five well-thought-out courses, each served with a carefully curated, complementing wine.
Responsible for the evening’s vinhos is Quinta de Sant’Ana – the Portuguese wine connoisseurs, whose variations of wine are all lovingly nurtured on a family run vineyard, amid the rolling hills and Atlantic backdrops of Mafra. Their hand-picked, hand-preened grapes are cultivated with specific growing-needs in mind; creating a characteristic zest for each wine.
