Delivered to Stack subscribers in December 2018, Above Sea Level is an annual wine, culture and travel magazine offering a fresh perspective on wine.
This second issue celebrates the people driving change in Portugal — from winemakers, through to food producers, chefs and architects. Beginning on the islands — Madeira and the Azores — and then moving from the north to the south of the mainland, this issue charts the people and the changing landscapes along the way.
In this issue:
- Volcanic vines: writer Jacob Charles Wilson explores the individual nature of two Portuguese islands — Madeira and Pico — and the challenges of volcanic winemaking with the Azores Wine Company
- A series of visual food memories from some of Portugal’s most talented chefs: Leandro Carreira, António Galapito and Vasco Coelho Santos
- Nature’s Way: writer David Michon talks to winemaker Mateus Nicolau de Almeida and architecture practice, Skrei, about the cross disciplinary nature of their work
- Secrets of the Algarve (one of the most exciting and underrated regions for making wine in Portugal)
