Prestigious, scenic region tour.
In the south of Portugal lies a poorly-kept secret: Alentejo, the new Tuscany. This one-day tour kicks off in Lisbon and a private driver will take you to a remarkable experience that includes wine tasting, lunch in a prestigious estate and sightseeing.
Surrounded by a grand, relaxing landscape, you'll explore Europe's golden wine land described by the NYTimes as the "new Tuscany". Perfect for both the rookie and the demanding wine-lover. Why? Alentejo is all about the scenic plains, the endless horizons, and its great wine and cuisine culture.
USA TODAY went as far as saying this is the best wine region in the world to visit. For any other region, added pressure would come with the title. But not for the relaxed, heavenly Alentejo.

Welcome to Portugal. Wine Tourism in Portugal will invite you to discover the amazing Alentejo.
The Private driver is waiting for you in your Hotel lobby in Lisbon or Lisbon International Airport (LIS).
Enjoy the scenic 1 hour and a half road trip to the Alentejo.
Your first stop will be at Monte da Ravasqueira. Connected to José de Mello's family for several generations, Monte da Ravasqueira is located in the municipality of Arraiolos, one hour away from Lisbon, and covers a vast area of the typical Alentejo landscape. Monte da Ravasqueira enjoys excellent geological and climatic conditions for the production of the best wine that Alentejo can offer, taking advantage of its terroir. The cellar of Monte da Ravasqueira is inspired in Napa Valley, California, and is equipped with the most advanced technology for a qualified and rigorous control of the wine making process. You will have a guided visit and wine tasting and a visit to the Carriage Driving Museum, one of the best carriage private collections in the country.
After the wine experience, you will enjoy lunch, at O Alpendre Restaurant. The Chef interprets the Alentejo cuisine with great passion, taking it as his starting point of the original recipes of this gastronomy and treating each delicacy as unique. In this typically Alentejo space we find the typical hospitality of this people. Here, meat from the Alentejo region predominates, such as black pork, veal and lamb. In terms of "migas", this is a true temple because the offer ranges from typical migas to asparagus, tomato, coriander, among others. The different variations are not there to confuse you, but to invite the discovery of different and subtle flavors of Alentejo gastronomy, based on simple ingredients but with an extraordinary richness when well combined. These will be joined by the ideal pairing.
When dessert arrives, we confirmed that Alpendre Restaurant is justly recognized for its conventual sweets: pastel de toucinho, typical sweet from Arraiolos and Miga dos Ganhões, a house specialty made with egg and walnut jam.
Then, you will discover Adega da Cartuxa. Two kms from the historic center of Évora, World Heritage city, and 200 metres of the Cartuxa Convent which inspired its name, the Wine Tourism Cartuxa is located in the former refectory of the Jesuit retirement home, they taught at the University of Évora in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Acquired in the nineteenth century by Eugénio de Almeida family, the Cartuxa Cellar has undergone several renovations and expansions over time, preserving the richness of its architectural and historical memory. The Cartuxa Cellar - Quinta Valbom is now one of the stage centers of the wines produced by the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation. The effort Fundação Eugénio de Almeida Foundation has poured into creating excellent products has been recognised over the years with various prizes. You will have a guided visit with a wine tasting and regional products.
After the experiences, return to Lisbon.
