Alentejo | The mandatory adventure for the wine obsessed
15 January 16
The editors of Wine Enthusiast magazine explain why Alentejo is a mandatory wine travel destination in 2016
“Rustic charm meets ready-to-drink reds in Portugal's most relaxed winemaking region” writes Roger Voss, editor of Wine Enthusiast magazine. It’s not difficult to fall in love with Alentejo: “Miles of vineyards and cork oak trees, historic chilltop cities and deserted beaches, not to mention the gastronomy and wineries open to the visitors. Alentejo has something for every visitor”. There are mountains in the north and vast plains of cereals in the south which promote charming and beautiful views. Like other wine regions in Portugal, Alentejo produces a wide range of wines using native grape varieties, mostly in blends. The indigenous grape varieties Fernão Pires and Antão Vaz benefit “from cooler microclimates and modern technologies and produce surprisingly delicate white wines ”.In the article, Roger Voss suggests wineries where it’s possible to taste and buy the wines from Alentejo, some places to dine and several activities to the visitors.
