For a wonderful gastronomic moment try the following recipe with octopus and avocado. It’s a fresh, light and flavored dish. In addition, it is easy and quick to prepare.

We suspect, however, that after preparing it once you will want to repeat many others. To accompany you, our wine specialist João Guedes recommends the white wine Vicentino Sauvignon Blanc, an Alentejo wine with mild aromas.
