Alentejo and Evora winetour from Lisbon

This wine tour from Lisbon offers an inmersion into the wine and wine country of the Alentejo region. Alentejo means literally “beyond” the Tagus. The Tagus is the river that dies in Lisbon and starts in Spain in Castilla. 

This wine tour is a perfect opportunity to discover Portugal wine making heritage. The Alentejo region is referred to as the “Portuguese Tuscany” and once you discover its plains, rolling hills and vineyards you will understand why.

The Alentejo region is well-known thanks to its bold red wines and its refreshing whites.  Wine making has been known in the area for many centuries. As a matter of fact, Evora´s top highlight is its Roman temple and it was romans that brought wine making.

This region is also well-known to wine lovers due to cork. Portugal is a super power in cork making and the oak forests beyond the vineyards and small villages add to the allure and charm of this rural part of Portugal. We believe a Lisbon wine tour offers so much that it will be one of the top highlights in your trip and an experience to remember for years to come.

  • This private tour from Lisbon is one of the best day tours to enjoy from Portugal´s capital and the one that offers the best contrast with Lisbon´s cosmopolitan vibes.
  • Enjoy a superb visit to a winery located at a place that will bring you back to roman times with olive trees and vineyards. Besides the amazing landscape the winery produces excellent wines!
  • Enjoy truly local Portuguese gastronomy. Some times you have to visit rural areas to discover the real traditional cousine and we have selected a restaurant where you will feel 100% Portuguese.
  • Discover Evora, a Unesco site that adds a rich cultural experience to your wine tour. 

Visiting Évora from Lisbon can be a wonderful addition to your trip and it is a perfect match for a day in wine country with this wine tour. Évora offers such an amazing contrast to Lisbon. This UNESCO World Heritage site with its medieval architecture and charming small streets is a perfect example of what Portugal and will seem as a different land compared to the energetic and vibrant atmosphere of Lisbon.

Evora is the capital of the Alentejo region and it is well-known by locals thanks to the quality of its local cuisine and its rich history. It´s most iconic landmark is the roman temple (the temple of Diana) but the city also holds a fantastic Cathedral (a good example of Romanesque blended with Gothic styles) and it is also home to La Capela  dos Ossos (chapel of bones), a rather macabre attraction that uses human skulls and bones as part of its decoration.
