Wine, architecture and other stories! In some places, in some stretches of land, man has made nature more fertile, painting it with terraces that descend and climb slopes, or with fertile plains that disappear into the horizon. Toil, knowhow, and seasons come together, patiently waiting… and hope in the happy tales that will finally be told in the heady contents of a glass. When nature completes her powerful mission, new adventures take place in the winery. The floor is no longer made of dirt, and sticky webs are no longer part of the decoration. The knowledge of ‘men of wine’ is combined with new technologies and the fine lines of architects who come up with new buildings, where grapes are transformed into triumph. Contemporary is combined with the tradition of centuries... and always with nature! And wine tourism, the fine art of hospitality and pride in showing the stories about that long wait that reached sublime liquid state all come together too. It is these and other adventures that we talk about in this 104th issue of Villas&Golfe;. But to the interviews of Álvaro Siza Vieira and other renowned architects, we add other forms of art, conveyed in the words of Diogo Infante or António Maia. We’ve brought together far-flung places, suggesting a trip through the ‘Kingdom of the Lion’, a foray into Italy’s Cinque Terre, or into other havens you’ll discover in the pages that follow. We also bring together Education, Youth and Sport, carried in the ideas of Tiago Brandão Rodrigues. Although it smells like must, or like the graphite of sketches, or the wood of casks, this issue brings you many more aromas, colours and flavours. Come join us!
