Wentworth members will then be able to enjoy lunch and dinner a la carte, together with a degustation menu accompanied by a list of fine Portuguese wines, throughout the rest of the week in The Wentworth Grill. To close the event, Perez and his team will prepare a brunch on Sunday.

Salvador Lucena, General Manager at Monte Rei Golf & Country Club says: “We’re excited to join the team at Wentworth for this gastronomic event. Our team at Monte Rei, under the guidance of Jaime Perez, has created a wonderful menu with a range of dishes to allow Wentworth members to enjoy a taste of Portugal, with traditional ingredients and cooking methods." 

Famed for its Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, the first of its kind in the Algarve, Monte Rei is rapidly gaining recognition around the world as a premier golf and family destination and, since its opening four years ago, has been ranked as the number one golf course in Portugal by Golf Monthly.
