Wine Tours FROM Evora?

Wine Tours FROM Evora?

Hello, I will be staying in Evora for three days in late April of 2017. I was wondering if there were any wine tours that departed FROM Evora, vs. all the ones I see that depart from Lisbon and only visit one winery/concentrate more on Evora sightseeing.

I'd like to visit a small handful of wineries, if possible. I know I could get a car but my husband isn't very interested in driving, especially when enjoying wine.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

You can, within easy walking distance of Évora, visit Cartuxa (a pretty famous producer) - http://cartuxa.pt

A friend of mine did this visit last week and said it was most interesting. I would recommend booking and/or confirming in advance that they will be open.

Ervideira (https://www.wonderful.land/ervideira/) have a tasting room pretty much in the town centre.

Reasonably comprehensive information about the wines of the Alentejo, can be found here - http://www.vinhosdoalentejo.pt/ - their "head office" is in Évora and one would like to think that they might be able to help you.

As said above a good start would be to pay a visit to the tasting room of Vinhos do Alentejo at Praça Joaquim António de Aguiar, nº 20-21, www.vinhosdoalentejo.pt/detalhe_conteudo.php…

They have a set of wines for tasting that changes every week, they have samples of soils to explain the different terroirs, but as far as I know they only can give you informations about which wineries receive visits. They didn't organized tours. Sent you a PM.

You should def check Eugenio de Almeida ( Evora ) and Esporao ( Monsaraz ) this second is just in a gorgeous place that worth a visit !

I lived in Evora for few years and dont know that many tours trough wineries. However some people do it by taxi. Discuss the price with taxi driver and i´m sure he will get you a nice deal. I used always the same one and was great.

Theres also in town this place : Momentos Evora, in rua 5 de outubro. They have also lot wines and some information about. Its super city center.
