You will get to see and feel:
Starting in the Maranhão region, the descent of the Seda River, alternates open sections with narrow ones. Always with some current and accompanied by lush greenery, the final kilometers of the route are made between the ancient watermills where the Silk River smoothly accelerates while surpassing some small weirs.
Then after get prepared for a deserved lunch cooked with traditional recipes and by wise hands; rich ingredients seasoned by regional aromatic herbs produce spicy and warm flavours resembling the Alentejo people.
To finish your magnificent day you will visit 2 wineries located on a landscape of rolling hills, where the surrounding tranquility invites you to a stop and to enjoy each moment. We will have the occasion to meet and taste the large variety of wines from this region. Whites that have a refreshing acidity, intense fruit and original aromas; fruity but fresh reds characterized by their elegance that lingers on your palate.
A wine producing region with a long tradition, the Alentejo boasts wines that will surprise you for their excellence, aromas and colours as unique as the landscape and the cuisine.
