The Alentejo region is very well known for the excellence of its wines, especially the red ones. Not more than 50 kilometres away from Évora you can find around 50 vineyard farms whose speciality is the production of this distinguished nectar. We recommend that you take a tour through the cellars, learning about the manufacturing process, take a walk through the vineyards, get to know the types of wines and taste some of them. We recommend the “Herdade do Esporão, the “Comenda Grande” or, a little bit further the “Quinta do Quetzal” farms.
