You will get to see and feel:
In the northern Alentejo, the chestnut trees and oaks share the area with cork oaks and holm oaks, while the vineyards, allied to olive groves, grow on the generally gentle slopes that border the streams.
You will get to know 3 Wine Producers with different dimensions, backgrounds, production goals, and taste wines with different development stages.
The wines from this area are very different from the rest of Alentejo: it’s not just about this elevated region’s cool climate (the region’s highest vineyard at 760m), it’s also about the field blends (different grape varieties mixed in the vineyards) and the aging potential of the wines. These conditions encourage the plants to ripen later and to produce wines that are fresher on the palate, with intense minerality, extremely elegant, and fantastic aging potential. Perhaps, one of the reasons why this region was considered in 2014 by USA Today, the best in the world.
Therefore, you will taste Wines with different profiles (when comparing to most parts of Alentejo) from a region that is known for its peculiar microclimate and altitude.
You will have the opportunity to talk and enjoy the company of winemakers and taste their precious jewels.
Lunch at a typical Alentejo restaurant, where people from Alentejo go with their families and friends.
Come and discover why Alentejo still has a bit of the character of a confined region, inhabited by friendly people and a quiet charm.
