One of the trademarks of Bairrada is, without a doubt, the roasted suckling pig known as Leitão à Bairrada. On this tour, we will show you how we roast a suckling pig, since its preparation to its tasting. Following Bairrada´s tradition, a spectacular roasted suckling pig can only be savoured if it´s combined with a great sparkling wine. Therefore, after having a special lunch, we will vist a winery of the region to show you how the sparkling wine is produced and its history.
