When you take the motorway east from Lisbon you have about an hour and a half’s drive until you arrive in the heart of the Alentejo region. On the way you will be passing stork nests on top of electricity pylons (you’ll be lucky if you see a bird), open fields with cows and a few pigs, the famous black ones that give the delicious cured ham, and innumerable oak trees.

It’s not until you arrive that you start seeing the vineyard. But there are plenty of them in the Alentejo region. It has shot up to become Portugal’s biggest wine region. One reason for the success is of course the dynamism of the growers and the quality of their wines. It is in many ways a pioneering region in Portugal.

We will show you that in great depth (many, many wines to taste), as well as introduce you to the local gastronomy on the Alentejo & Setubal wine tour on October 25-29.
