The wine tour to Alentejo begins in Lisbon. Portugal’s capital is located at the mouth of the river Tejo. It is a city built on hills, an exciting city where you will always find something unexpected. We stay the first and the last night in Lisbon. The other two nights we are in the much smaller city of Evora, in the middle of the Alentejo district. A smaller town but equally exciting. Here you walk among whitewashed houses in narrow alleys. You will find Roman remains and renaissance churches.

In Evora, a variety of peoples and epochs have made their mark. Alentejo is actually Portugal’s biggest wine region, and perhaps the most modern. It is also the home of most of the cork oak forests. You will explore Evora in the evenings; the days are of course devoted to the wine and the wine producers. And, of course, to the food. You will taste many different Portuguese specialties; not least the delicious cured ham, which is as good (or better?) as the Spanish one.

Discover Alentejo, the wines, the food and much more on our Alentejo and Setúbal wine tour 25 to 29 October.
