- Rick and Pat
- We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Making Our Wine.
Here is Rick and John working the magic and strong man thing...they are tipping in the grapes and then crushing them , its a tough job when there's a lot of grapes... then there is a shot of all our lovely grapes mulched up and in the vat.
It will stay in the vat, being stirred twice a day for five days only, then they will put it through the press to sqeeze every last little drop out, before transfering it to the barrel. We are hoping for around 120 litres , which we may take around 25 litres for making some Port...
