Cartaxo’s Wine Festival is an event, organized since 1988 by Cartaxo’s Town Hall. Its main purpose is the preservation of its historic and cultural identity, and it also promotes their local wines.

Each year, Cartaxo’s festival proposes a trip to the scintillating world of wines in a space where you can also enjoy it´s region´s gastronomy and musical entertainment.

Moved by the desire to go further, and in order to bring news and differentiating elements to this event, this year’s edition decided to showcase bread as its guest of honor.

The art of flavor born from tradition; bread and wine alike sat down at the same table and celebrated together Cartaxo’s Wine Festival.

Two different elements but with quite a bit in common… they are both born in the countryside, are transformed through fermentation and rising, and finally both are presented in different forms by Man. They also embody memories and identities, forever being present in moments of sharing, union and happiness.

As a good host should, the organization of Cartaxo’s Wine Festival prepared itself in order to receive Bread properly:

  • it had a space specially dedicated to setting up a bakery equipped to knead, mold and bake bread, which counted with Ferneto’s and Fastfer cooperation;
  • it invited CFPSA a professional school (Centro de Formação Profissional para o Sector Alimentar – Professional Training Center for the Food Industry) to have show cooking sessions onsite during the event;
  • it provided local bakeries with a place to show their products;
  • and engaged the little ones in the art of bread making through children´s workshops.


And this is what it was like, from April 30th to May 5th, the bakery and its chefs mixed a lot of wheat in order to involve visitors, conquering and getting more people interested in baking.

In order to honor all those involved, the Wine Festival took photos which they published on its Facebook page and were kind enough to lend us.

To the event organizers, to all those who were involved in the bakery and to all the visitors, thank you for bringing bread to this flavourful festival.
