After a morning pickup from your hotel in central Lisbon, travel south with your guide towards Alentejo, a winemaking region that’s garnered worldwide praise for its wines. During the way the guide will give many insights about gastronomy and wines in Portugal, the difference between regions in terms of flavor (fruits), body or acidity of the wines. On this tour you will get to know how some grape varieties have been introduced in Portuguese soils since the time of Phoenicians and Greeks but also the winemaking process. We will drive up north to the sunbaked plains of Alentejo, a winemaking region that stretches from the Spanish border to the Algarve in the south. Upon arrival in Alentejo, visit a local winery and discover the process behind producing these wines. Then put your palette to the test during a wine tasting of reds and whites as well as degustation of local products such as cheese, chouriço (smoked pork sausage), smoked ham and bread. Continue on to the second winery in Alentejo, which has a long-standing winemaking tradition and a stellar reputation for producing intense and fruity ruby-colored reds. Venture out into the neatly pruned vines during a guided vineyard tour and learn about the climate and local varietals. Compound your newfound knowledge during another wine tasting session, where a tutor will talk you through the complex flavors of each style. Afterward, settle into the car for a scenic drive back to Lisbon, in late afternoon be dropped off at a choice of two centrally located points; Marquês de Pombal or Restauradores square.
