Cork Factories, History and Heritage

We know the magnificent wines made in Portugal but have you ever wondered what is the role cork has in its production? Come and learn why Portugal and the Portuguese both enjoy and cherish so much the use of cork.

You will get to see and feel:

You will visit the most important cork factories and wineries of Azaruja and Redondo and know the places and processes where the most well known products that come from the Alentejo Montado are born.
We will also let you know the interlinked history, heritage and traditions that feed the richness of this remarkable region. Like everything in Alentejo, Montado and its industries work at the pace of agricultural cycles, so this route is available from September to May.

The restaurants in Alentejo are the ideal place for the visitor to be presented to this region´s gastronomy. In Alentejo one eats well. The reason is simple: just gather ingredients from the lands of the region with the wise Alentejo hands.

Alentejo wines offer endless pleasure, whites, rosés and reds; wines full of aromatic exuberance, round and smooth wines, with a unique ability to be drunk early … knowing how to age with distinction. In the afternoon we will visit 2 wineries of the region.
