Alentejo region is the place where time and space meet.
Here your spirit will slow down and you will gladly mingle with the local people, breathing the local calm and happiness!
Alentejo is an endless open space! Colours and smells burst from the land while the night falls upon the planes and when finally the night comes, it is the moment to stare at the skies and watch the stars with the naked eye.
The real Alentejan soul is not only in the unmistakable outline of the typical white and yellow houses painting the tops of the hills, in the traditional arts and skills conserved and renewed, but also in the “choral chanting” that only the Alentejanos know how to sing, with their heart and soul.
Eating, drinking and snacking are rituals, ways of socializing and celebrating!
In a truly Alentejan’s home, the table is always set! This is the main requirement for discovering this region’s gastronomy and wines. They are part – and a happy part – of the most authentic daily life of the Region. Here, there are more than 250 producers, with an area under cultivation in the order of 22,000 hectares.
Alentejo’s wine quality comes from various factors: the perfect marriage between the grape varieties used and the various types of soil; the thousands hours of sunlight; the growers discipline, who understand that good wine begins with good vines; and finally, the skills that the oenologists have revealed in the art of winemaking, conciliating tradition and modernity. The white wines are aromatic, fresh and harmonious as the result of varieties blending. The reds have intense bouquets of well-matured red fruits and are smooth, balanced, and full-bodied. Although they are amazing young wines, they age graciously to complex and smooth flavours.
