Big Day 2016: The Guests

Big Day 2016: The Guests

The Big Day is all about sharing what we are as the Esporão family, our Alentejo and the experiences of being at Herdade do Esporão. And that sharing only makes sense if bring together the natural sound landscape with the people who represent the values that we identify with, transmitting them with their own individual skill and know-how throughout the country.

Here, we present the guests who will make this day even bigger.

Lisboa String Trio

José Peixoto (guitar), Carlos Barretto (double bass) and Bernando Couto (Portuguese guitar) are the members of the Lisbon String Trio. The combination of the three artists’ identity, as well as the jazz and fado that they bring from Lisbon, takes shape against the backdrop of the Alentejo landscape. A concert to enjoy in our garden.

His most recent album, which was recorded in the Túnel das Barricas (Barrel Tunnel), is inspired by the Alentejo plain and the art of winemaking. On the morning of the 19th, once again, “Sur Lie” will be heard at the Herdade’s garden.
