On this luxury wine and food tour, designed by Portugal by Wine, we invite you to discover the Alentejo Wine Region.
The program of 2 days and 1 night includes the visit to emblematic Alentejo Wine Estates, where you will taste the best wines, gastronomy and enjoy unforgettable wine tourism experiences.
The tour starts with the pick-up at Humberto Delgado Airport, in hotels, or in the city centre of Lisbon. You will be accompanied by a chauffeur specialized in wine tourism, and the entire trip will be in a premium vehicle.
After the pick-up, the trip towards the Lower Alentejo will be full of stunning landscapes, where you will appreciate the peculiar beauty of this route.
The activities will begin at Herdade da Malhadinha Nova, located in Albernôa, in the heart of the Lower Alentejo, is a space of freedom that is lost on the horizon, where high quality wines are produced, and native animals are created in total harmony with nature. Here you will participate in an advanced wine-tasting course that will make you travel through the pleasure of sensory experiences and in the recognition of the grape varieties, carefully selected for your production.
Owner of an innovative concept in Portugal, Herdade da Malhadinha Nova provides thematic experiences, where wine and gastronomy take on a fundamental role. In the cellar building, the restaurant complements the experience with the offer of an author's kitchen, inspired by the typical Alentejo dishes, recreated by a Michelin-starred Chef Joachim Koerper. This is the concept we invite you to know! You will taste a 4-moment menu in the restaurant, paired with Malhadinha wines.
After lunch, our chauffeur will take you to the city of Beja, where you will have free time to walk. We suggest that you visit the Castle Keep, so important in the fights to defend Portugal's borders. It is well worth climbing to the top, admire the city and the surrounding Alentejo landscape. Very close by is the Church of Santiago, the Cathedral and the Church of Santo Amaro, where the Visigothic Nucleus of the Regional Museum is installed. In the heart of the city, the Republic Square, whose Manueline foundation buildings provide a particular touch to the square, where we see a pillory also from the 16th century and the Misericórdia Church, a Renaissance work of reference.

The hotel offers a unique concept, combining rural tourism and different activities linked to wine tourism.
