In the morning, meet your guide at your centrally located Lisbon hotel and head by air-conditioned vehicle south for your wine tour. As you cruise towards the Alentejo region, learn about this region’s viticultural prowess.
Hear about the vastness of this region which links the Algarve in southern Portugal all the way to the edge of Spain. At the first winery, taste a variety of red and white wines and savour delicious local products such as cheese, chouriço (smoked pork sausage), smoked ham and bread. You will then enjoy a relaxing buffet lunch (included) at the first or second winery depending on the group size.
Prior to arriving at the second winery of the day in Alentejo, discover the historical significance of winemaking and learn how this region has gained such a superb reputation for full-bodied reds. Then, stroll into the expertly maintained vineyard and listen to your guide explain how each grape is affected by climate. After getting to know the varietals it’s time to taste, so grab a glass and indulge fruity flavors with complex bodies.
After your tasting, hop back in your vehicle and admire splendid views on your return trip to Lisbon. End your day in the afternoon back at a choice of two centrally located drop off points; Marquês de Pombal or Rossio.
