Check-in at Monverde – Wine Experience Hotel. The Hotel Monverde project was born among the berries and vineyards of Quinta da Lixa, between conversations, inspirations, and aspirations. Initially, it would be "a big house" for friends of wine, but with time, stone by stone, it grew, gained roots, and became a "serious thing". The concept of the rooms essentially involves the integration of each one of them into the overall idea of the hotel, which is to link the accommodation to the exploration and production of wine, promoting direct contact with the cultural and landscape heritage of the surroundings. The rooms are spacious and unpretentious, resulting in charming spaces where contemporary aesthetics favored comfort, in an atmosphere of calm and intimacy.
Then, you will have a unique experience, Wine Blending for a Day. This is a practical and very interactive activity that enhances the knowledge of grape varieties and their contribution to the production of green wines. The result is the creation of your batch and the souvenir of the wine with the signature of the visitor. The program begins with a succinct explanation of how to produce white wines and their styles while sampling the 5 monovarietal wines, after the test of the lot to the pilot scale, the visitor begins to bottle its wine, followed by the production of the label (brand creation, drawing, and painting). At the end of the activity, pride is felt in each face and they carry the wine bottle with tenderness.
Dinner is waiting for you at Monverde Restaurant. Allow yourself to be surprised by the universe of Portuguese gastronomy. A Cuisine where the harmonious fusion of the region's products reigns, intense with flavors and experiences, inevitably led by an excellent wine list. Chef Carlos Silva fits into the culture of the region, one of the richest in Portugal at the Gastronomic level, and gives a new look, featuring light and colorful dishes, always combining the fresh products of Quinta da Lixa with the usual flavors.
