Founded in 1847, the Association Of Our Lady Of The Afflicted works in the former convent of the Cardaes, in Lisbon. During the Christmas season organizes a solidarity brunch where wines from renowned producers and wineartists from various national regions will be served.
I don't know if you know the work of this institution, which works miracles. There a team of Dominican Sisters, techniques, auxiliaries and volunteers - directed by by 'super sister' Ana Vieira takes care of 35 young and adult, poor, abandoned and marginalized, who found in this association their family.
At Christmas time, until December 15, the convent organizes brunch at the weekend, between 12:00 and 3:00 p.m., where enophiles can already enjoy United Wine Women wines. At the same time, it runs from 12:00 to 7:00 pm a Christmas sale. Finally, those who can't come to brunch can have lunch from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm! The recipe collected by the consumption of these wines, at the time of brunch and snack, will revert in favor of this institution. Be sure to go to contribute to this cause.
