Being from the Alentejo in the Olive oil, Cork, Wine and Gastronomy Tour

How will you really feel like an “alentejano” in this tour? Through the relaxed conversations with your hosts and the sensations you will experience in the tranquility of the countryside on an enogastronomic tour combined with olivotourism and medieval heritage.

Let yourself be guided through the beautiful landscapes of the Alentejo with our driver/guide. You can ask a few questions. But the real revelations will come later…
Go on a calm jeep adventure, a safari through the cork oak and holm oak forest, the natural habitat of the well known Iberian Black Pig, which eats the acorns that fall to the ground. Feel the scents of nature, touch the trees that give us cork, learning all about this ecosystem. Discover the story of an English family that planted new roots in the Alentejo in the 19th century.

Explore the vineyards with different varieties (Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional and Aragonez). Taste the award-winning wines that are a result of the union between the clay-lime soils, the Alentejo climate and the knowledge of the winemaker and winemaker.

Meet a small and traditional olive grove in the company of the producer himself, passionate about his grandfather’s legacy. Feel young near two olive trees that are over 2000 years old. Learn to make a real olive oil blind tasting, just like those who have already awarded this production as the best Galician virgin olive oil.

Discover why olive oil is highly beneficial for your health and why you should include it in your diet. Have lunch at the farm, eating family dishes prepared with local products from the Alentejo accompanied by an excellent wine. Clearly understand why the Mediterranean Diet is considered Intangible Cultural Heritage by Unesco, a distinction that combines healthy ingredients with the strengthening of friendship ties while enjoying the meal.

Ascend to the historic Evoramonte Castle accompanied by your guide. Go back in time inside the imposing walls high up in the Sierra d’Ossa. Discover the place conquered from the Moors in the 12th century, which would later become an important castle. It was here that, many centuries later, in 1834, the Convention of Evoramonte would be signed, ending the only Civil War in Portuguese History. Enjoy the wonderful view over the Alentejo as far as your eyes can see.
Visit a cork processing factory where this material from nature becomes art far beyond the known cork stoppers. Enjoy the creativity that produces hundreds of useful pieces of daily use, decoration, fashion, clothing, footwear,…
