an insider's view of
With pick-up and drop off in Lisbon and small daily travels, this tour is based out of the UNESCO town of Evora, where you will be staying for 6 nights in a beautiful four starred hotel.
The Alentejo, a region located in the south central part of Portugal is often described as the heartland of the country. Although it is full of compelling landscapes, history and agriculture, it is equally known for its leisurely pace of life; the reason an increasing number of expats now call it home.
There is a saying in the Alentejo that 'life proceeds at the pace of the wind'. Equally beautiful as it is relaxed, the Alentejo offers varied and compelling scenery; wheat fields, walled hilltop towns, castles and Roman ruins, hills dotted with ancient cork trees, olive trees and, of course, vineyards. From your hotel in Evora, you will be enjoying daily excursions to experience the surrounding cultures and the incredible regional foods.
Some of the highlights (other than wine tasting) of this wine tour include:
A personal and intimate food and wine tasting experience to get to know each other on the first night together.
A visit to the largest set of prehistoric stones in the Iberian Peninsula (2,000 years older than Stonehenge).
A visit to a cork forest to learn all about these ancient and magical trees.
A trip to a tiny medieval town untouched by time with an incredible view across the plain to Spain.
And of course, enjoying traditional Portuguese foods at some of our favorite restaurants from our extensive time in the Alentejo.
