Hear about the vastness of this region which links the Algarve in southern Portugal all the way to the edge of Spain. At the first winery, taste a variety of red and white wines and savour delicious local products such as cheese, chouriço (smoked pork sausage), smoked ham and bread. You will then enjoy a relaxing buffet lunch (included) at the first or second winery depending on the group size. Prior to arriving at the second winery of the day in Alentejo, discover the historical significance of winemaking and learn how this region has gained such a superb reputation for full-bodied reds. Then, stroll into the expertly maintained vineyard and listen to your guide explain how each grape is affected by climate. After getting to know the varietals it’s time to taste, so grab a glass and indulge fruity flavors with complex bodies. After your tasting, hop back in your vehicle and admire splendid views on your return trip to Lisbon. End your day in the afternoon back at a choice of two centrally located drop off points; Marquês de Pombal or Rossio.

Highly recommended!!
Sep 2018 • Solo
The guide was very friendly and he told us about Portugal's history during the ride. The two wineries were very beautiful, specially the second one, and very classy. The wines in the first winery were the best and the tasting included a small appetiser. The wines in the second winery weren't that good but the food was amazing and the place was astonishing and even included a pleasant surprise. Overall, I got even more than expected for the money paid.

Best day of our Portugal visit

Great wine tasting and lunch at the summer residence of a Portuguese nobel family. Our guide Mihaela was super. In Portugal we visited the Algarve coast, Lisbon and Sintra. This tour was the best experience of our vacation.

Jun 2018 • Couples
Had to reschedule tour due lack of participants on Original date.
We were told they could pick us up at one location and changed it the day before. Communication could have been clearer in a foreign country. We felt the host could have been forthcoming about the area we traveled. The winery’s were okay. I always learned new things with each winery. The second one was all about selling. The lunch was very tasty and the guests were great .

Well-rounded wine tasting experience
May 2018 • Couples
My husband and I have done many wine tours over the years, this was our first with this company and it was a great experience. We had a chance to sample in both smaller family-run and larger corporate wineries and learned a great deal about the local wine-making techniques and varietals. Lunch was a great chance to sample a variety of local favorites.
