If you are lucky enough to be in Portugal for your birthday as I was, here is all you need to do for a perfect day:
Step 1. Wake up at Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora Do Carmo and party in the cellar!

Step 2. Have lunch at Quinta do Panascal
Yes, there was food in between each of these wines too...
Step 3. Check in at Quinta do Pego

Step 4. Party on into the night at Quinta do Pego: Drink great port, make celebratory toasts, and eat cake with new friends.

What pairs with Birthday cake? -Everything!
Quinto do Pego Port tasting took place prior to the birthday party
"99 bottles of Port on the wall...99 bottles of Port...Take one down, pass it around..."
Step 5. Repeat step number four above at least 45 times.
Stayed tuned... last few posts in the Portugal Series coming up next.
