Portugal is a small country but an important wine country. First, it became known for its fortified wines, port wines and madeira. The port has made a comeback in recent years. High-quality Madeira is much appreciated by the wine connoisseurs. But today, Portugal is definitely not only fortified wine. On the contrary. From the north to the south there are vineyards, and both the white and the red wines are of very good quality, from refreshing Vinho Verde in the north to rich and full-bodied Alentejo wines in the south.
Our October wine tour to Alentejo takes us first to the Setubal peninsula where we will visit-famous JM Fonseca. In Alentejo we will stay in the adorable little town of Evora and visit fascinating wine growers such as Cortes de Cima, Herdade da Mingorra and Herdade do Rocim.
Do you want to know more about Alentejo, the wines, the food and much more, come on our Alentejo and Setúbal wine tour 25 to 29 October.
