Alentejo Wine

View all products in Alentejo Wine »

The Alentejo denomination of origin is found in the Portuguese region of the same name, name which means "beyond the gorge". This area is divided into 8 vine-growing regions, which used to have independent denominations of origin, but which now make up the Alentejo DOC.

The Alentejo DOC has more than 19,000 hectares of vineyards. A stable climate, although according to some experts, too hot to produce world-quality wines.

Among the best strains, we can find periquita, bastardo and the trincadeira. The latter one is the one which produces the mst elegant wines. Among the white strains, we find the arinto, perrum and manteado vines.

Some of the best wines in this denomination of origin are Esporao, Quinta do Mouro and Quinta do Carmo. Currently, Portugal is a wine paradise, since this area has many autoctonous strains, and it is good that this is maintained and that the introduction of globalized strains, such as Sauvignon, among others, is avoided.
