Alentejo wine tour from the Algarve

Alentejo wine tour from the Algarve



The region of Alentejo, that was already considered the best wine region in the world to visit by the readers of USA Today and often referred and recommended in expertized publications (IG: Decanter Magazine), is a inevitable destination in Portugal for wine lovers.

This idilic and largest portuguese rural region is an invitation to peace, relaxation and delight. It starts to impress immediatelly you enter it and drive the long roads that run through its flat lands and small hills, surrounded by large agricultural fields of vines, flowers, cork trees, olive trees, pastures of cattle and much more.

The Alentejo is also the largest wine region in Portugal, with old traditions in the wine production. It is today a wine region of excellence and a main actor in the portuguese panorama of wine. A region that leads the industry in innovation, research and technology and at the same time preserves its best traditions, some millenia (such as carving wines). Combining all this with its immense gastronomic culture and the simplicity of its people make this a destination not to be missed.

This tour will take you to the most southern part located about an hour and a half from the Algarve, where around the very traditional village of Albernoa exist several wineries. We will arrive to the first winery at 11 AM, we will visit the vineyards, cellar and taste the wines.
