Portugal – Alentejo

Alentejo is a place where tradition and land go hand in hand. The history that lives here is as vast as the landscape and whose story is told through the architecture and artifacts left behind from those that came before. Taking up 1/3 of Portugal there are 8 sub-regions which hold the greatest diversity of soil types in all of Portugal’s wine regions. Red wines from Alentejo are quickly rising in reputation for quality wines, known for their big bold fruit, soft tannins and drinkability while the whites lead with tropical notes and balanced acid.
