Southern Portugal Wine Tour 2023
Portugal wine tour.
Lisbon, Setúbal and Alentejo are perhaps not the most famous of wine regions, but Southern Portugal has much to offer the curious wine lover. Close to Lisbon, which has its own vineyards, is Setúbal, best known for its legendary fortified wines produced from Moscatel. In Alentejo there are rolling hills covered in vineyards, olive groves, cork forests, whitewashed villages, and Moorish castles. And the historic town of Évora where we were based, and which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Alentejo is home to a range of indigenous grapes including Trincadeira, Alfrocheiro Preto, Arinto, Antão Vaz and Fernão Pires, and there are international varieties too. This was our first venture into these fascinating regions and we will certainly be back again!
