Mica Opaz: youngest ever motorbike champion in the making

 "Look Mum it's dead easy to start!"

Caught up with Gabriella Opaz and champion to be – Mica – in centre of Porto today.

 Gabriella looks slightly concerned! Perhaps he needs a crash helmet...

2011 Vale da Capucha, Vinho Regional Lisboa

We chatted and caught up with news sharing a bottle of the 2011 Vale da Capucha – a blend of Arinto, Fernão Pires and Godello. The Capucha was quite weighty but the Arinto gives it good acidity and freshness in the finish. Champion Mica built up his strength with a bowl of soup.
