What’s It Like to Mix Wine and Surfing?

In the collective conscience, the stereotype of the surfer is that after a long day of riding the waves, they like to enjoy a beer on the beach at sunset. At least that’s what the movies taught us.

“We think the scene is missing a glass of wine. Perhaps some rosé at this sunset on the waves… is this too mainstream?  “

Snooping around the internet, mostly LinkedIn, I dove into something called “Surf Wine Tours.” 

Whatever could this be? Who’s the mad genius who came up with having a glass of wine while surfing?

I contacted the founder, Mario, because I couldn’t stand to not know.

So what did the Surf Wine Tours turn out to be? Here’s their explanation in a tweet:

Did you hear Mario?

If you head to Portugal, he’ll organize a surfing and wine vacation for you. Luxury in the form of food and wine tours.

How is a vacation with Surf Wine Tour structured?

[Ritorno a capo del testo]Every day you surf in a new location, you eat and drink in restaurants, you taste, you learn, and you have fun. Basically, you travel around Portugal, you’ll see resounding views, and visit magnificent wineries.  Do you know what the most famous rosé from Portugal is? The Mateus.

Have you ever heard of Port, the famous fortified wine from Portugal?

In recent years, a rosé version of it has come on the scene. Didn’t expect that one, huh?

The world of wine is definitely complex, magnificent, and enormous. One can never really stop learning. We love to see people who put their all into reinventing and rejuvenating a world that’s often slave to its own traditions. However, don’t get me wrong: I’m definitely not saying that tradition is a bad thing. Just that we don’t necessarily agree with “we do it this way because it’s always been done this way.” This is why we appreciate people like Mario.

Even he’s a huge rosé lover:

“Finally, even here, rosé wine is getting it’s well-deserved recognition and appreciation.”
