“We love to create more opportunities for people to taste these niche wine family brands with good quality and good price!” says Sara.
The wine cellar on the first floor boosts a comprehensive collection of Portuguese wines, including Cartuxa Pera Manca Tinto, one of the shop owner’s most favourite. She also highly recommends some niche, green family-produced wine brands due to their distinctive family characteristic and preference that are fully reflected in the wine, such as CASA D’ ALMEAR which is produced by three generations with family winemaking tradition through continuous experiment, improvement, innovation and winemaking techniques, and now the brand is ready to be revealed to the world, at limited quantity of 12,000 bottles produced each year. Bearing the same vision of sustaining the essence of authenticity the owner meets the wine family’s vineyard to acquire fine wines to Macau market.
The fashion corner at the top floor, offers tempting leather gifts, most of them hand made by Ana a macanese girl with a degree in Fashion. Embroideries, mosaic lamps, fashionable items and accessories which are collected by Sara’s family in order to present a comprehensive collection of cool things to you.
