0 Comment/

I invite you to discover the amazing, scenic Alentejo. Enjoy a 2 days trip, accompanied by an amphora winery tour and tasting.

  • Alentejo is an ideal destination for lovers of culture, wine and cuisine.
  • This region makes for a wonderful laid-back destination. Away from the busy coastal resorts, its slow-paced vibe is a big draw for visitors seeking to unwind.
  • Two days in Alentejo can seem like a really short trip, but you can actually get a lot done. Down below you will find a full day-by-day breakdown, which will give you an introduction to what you can do, see, and enjoy in Alentejo in our tour.
  • As you travel, enjoy the amazing views as wheat fields pass you by alternating with vineyards, olive groves, and forests of cork oak (after all, Alentejo is the largest producer of cork in the world).
  • This tour also includes private transportation, which will allow you to quickly move around while having your hands free to take wonderful photos and fully immerse yourself in the landscape around you.

    Day 1
  • Pick-up at your accommodation by your private driver. And let’s start to head to Alentejo.
  • .

  • First, we will visit the Honrado Vineyards.
    .
    The production of the Honrado wine is the result of a familiar project between father and son. António Honrado, the father, a producer of wine for more than 15 years, who once wished to take his wine beyond the borders of Alentejo, allied himself with his son, and thus the wine “Talha” was born – a product that has as its fundamental principle the respect for the history, culture, and tradition of Alentejo. The wine it’s produced in a traditional way through the millenarian technique of fermenting the grape in clay pots. This technique comes from Roman times and has remained unchanged throughout more than 2000 years of history, passing from grandfathers to parents and from them to their children, through popular wisdom.
    It is in the region of Vila de Frades, a small town in the heart of Alentejo with less than 900 inhabitants, that this tradition has been kept alive, and which is recognized today as “the Capital of Vinho de Talha”.
    You will enjoy an amphora cellar visit, accompanied by a tasting of 4 wines with local tapas.

  • Then we continue our journey to check-in at a 4-star castle hotel, Pousada Castelo Alvito. Accommodation in 2-bedded rooms.
    .
    The castle is seen as a building of a mixture of military and palatial residential architecture, where you can see Islamic, gothic and Manueline influences. In 1993 it opened as a hotel belonging to the Pousadas de Portugal, which gave homage to the region’s culture, both for the environment it offers as well as for its line of traditional regional dishes and the wine it has.
    The garden is highlighted with its water mill irrigation in carved surfaces, showing the enjoyment of the medieval castles.
  • .

  • After check-in, you will have time to discover this charming village of Alvito on your own, where the old houses, richly decorated with Manueline elements, indicate that this is no ordinary village, or just to have a rest in your comfortable room.
  • .

  • At the end of the day, you will enjoy a delicious, 2-course dinner in the restaurant, located in the hotel. The atmosphere is refined, comfortable and intimate. The vaulted ceilings give the restaurant a unique and special character.
  • .

  • End of day.
  • .

    Day 2
  • Breakfast at the Hotel.
  • .

  • Then we continue our journey through Alentejo to the city of Beja. We stop at the city center to discover this calm pearl of Alentejo. A visit to Beja in an atmosphere of Alentejo calm, to discover conquests and hidden loves.
  • .

  • Here we head for the Tower of the Castelo de Menagem, with its place in the country’s history, where great battles took place to defend Portugal’s borders. With 40 meters high and all built in marble, it is the flagship monument of Beja. The view from the top is unprecedented, an expansive way to admire the city and the surrounding Alentejo landscape.
  • .

  • Nearby, the beautiful Cathedral, and around it, the Manueline-style architecture gives a particular note to the square, where you can see a pillory also from the 16th century, and the Misericórdia Church, a reference work from the Renaissance period.
