Hello, my name is Sandra Fernandes and I am the proud owner of Santar Deli/shop in Harrogate. I was born in Portugal and raised in a village called Santar.
This is a small village in the North where in my opinion the best wine and olive oil is produced.
As a young girl I worked during school holidays harvesting grapes and olives, this was where the love of fresh produce came from. Santar is sat in the Dao region between two famous mountains, Serra da Estrela and Serra do Caramulo and produces wines such as Casa de Santar , Fidalgas de Santar , Quinta do Sobral and many more...
I had the pleasure to watch and learn whilst my grandmother baked fresh bread on a fire stone oven and also made her own chouriço and presunto. My family and I are very passionate about food and we believe mixing what we enjoy and love with the great North Yorkshire produce we will be able to offer something quite unique!
