Taste Alentejo with Your Own Touch

The province was once a region of wheat and wide plains where herds of swine grazed freely in oak plantations and olive groves. Bread, pork and olive oil therefore became staples in one of the tastiest cuisines in Portugal, seamlessly combined with aromatic herbs such as coriander, parsley, rosemary, oregano, pennyroyal and mint.

You will get to see and feel:

The Alentejo cuisine has always been linked to agriculture and to its own genuine products. Although authentic, it can be a very rich and complex cuisine aimed for people with refined taste and not a cuisine aiming social distinction. It’s Alwyas present, when we seek its strength and vigor.

Following the aromas of the wine and the different herbs served with the olive oil, in the typical style of the Alentejo Region, everything is well aromatized with herbs. Thus, come to join us and experience how the Alentejo gastronomy is rich in aromas and flavors. On a comfortable and historical environment you will be challenged to perform traditional recipes, always supervised by someone knowledgeable, who will tell you all the little secrets that are only told to closest friends. Immediately after this you will have the opportunity to taste your own meal, paired with wines suitable to match the your self made dishes.

In the company of a chef or local family what we promise you is to taste, calm, well-made dishes and wines, spiced by the talk of someone who is a friend…

Alentejo is made out of magnificent landscapes of rolling hills, where the surrounding tranquility invites you to a stop and to enjoy each moment. We will visit 2 traditional wine estates, where we will taste the big variety of wines from this region. Whites that have refreshing acidity, intense fruit and slight mineral notes; red wines that are fruity but fresh and are characterized by their elegance that lingers on the palate.

Come with us and check how this one day food and wine tour of the Alentejo will satiate your senses in every way possible.
