Deep Alentejo Wines

Typical Alentejo landscape surrounding the largest artificial lake in Europe, Alqueva: vast vineyards, thousands of olive trees, cork oaks and holm oaks; and the notable heritage of fortified towns and villages which have defended this part of Alentejo throughout the centuries. It is a region that arouses passions, that awakens our soul and makes us want to know it more and better.

You will get to see and feel:

This region, where the skyline extends as far as the eye can see, on which the cork oaks bestow a sense of strength and durability, was once an expanse of wheat fields. Today, the wheat fields have been replaced by vast vineyards, whose wines take in the power of the landscape and the heat, and can be counted amongst the most celebrated in Portugal.

Visit to 3 wineries. You will get to know red wines rich in tannins, full bodied, spicy, with aromas of wild and red berries and whites with mineral notes, slightly acid  and fresh tropical fruit on them. In short wines that offer trememdous pleasure to drink.

You may even have the possibility to taste between November and January one of the Historic Portuguese Wines produced in large clay amphorae, a process that dates back to Roman civilization.

Lunch on Estremoz, Beja or Vidigueira regions. In this region, as it is well-known in all Portugal, the cuisine is a must. The reason is simple: delicious ingredients from Alentejo together with the wise hands of the people who have lived here for generations. For desert? Inheritance of several convents over the centuries the conventual sweets of this region are one of the most diverse and rich in the country.

Discover why there is something profoundly reinvigorating and redeemer in Alentejo, in the endless space, the vastness of the plains with large oak trees, the wide sky in a spotless blue, the infinite horizon and, obviously, in its people, the quiet people, honest and proud of Alentejo.
