Hello and welcome. My wife's family is from Madeira, we visited last year for 2 weeks and stayed a couple days is Lisbon. Wonderful place, lots of people had home made wine and agua ardiente (maybe spelled wrong, it was sugar cane alcohol). I had Poncha and Shandy for the first time too. I didn't meet any home brewers tho.

Welcome and enjoy.

Actually itīs linguiįa,or chouriįa.
Iīm from Algarve in the south,here we have a great tradition in "aguardente" de medronho,that is a fruit with lot of sugar,and itīs fantastic.Sugar cane alcohol is in Brazil.
Here i think thereīs no tradition in home brewing,home wine making,and "aguardente"(deslilled alcohol from wine,and wine mosh,or medronho or figgs) yes.In this last weekend i went to my oncleīs farm to help collect grapes to make wine,he gave me a big botlle from last year,and my god!! What a wine!

That's OK, my friend's family is from the Azores. He talks about it, still goes to his mother's house to eat it about once a month. But I haven't convinced him to take me with him yet.

Azores has his own unique cuisine and traditions,most of them i donīt know.
I never been there,but is a place i want to visit some day.Itīs still raw nature...
LOok in youtube about an episode of Antony Bourdain about Azores,itīs interesting.

Portugal is a small country,but very rich in cuisine and traditions.
