Alto Alentejo is a region located in the eastern part of Portugal, known for its beautiful landscapes, cultural heritage and unique gastronomy. In recent years, it has become one of the most promising wine regions in Portugal, with a strong commitment to the quality of its wines.
The Alto Alentejo region has a wide variety of grape varieties, many of them indigenous, such as Trincadeira, Aragonez or Alicante Bouschet, which allow the production of unique and distinctive wines. In addition, its Mediterranean climate with continental influence and its soils of schist, granite and clay give unique characteristics to the region’s wines.
Alto Alentejo’s winegrowers have made a firm commitment to quality, using sustainable and environmentally friendly cultivation techniques. In addition, many wineries in the region have opted for modernisation and innovation in winemaking processes, without forgetting the traditions and culture of the region.
