Portugal has a rich cultural heritage associated with wine. The strong wine tradition is present in all regions of the country, which over time has seen this inheritance pass from generation to generation.
Recognized worldwide, the Portuguese wines have a great diversity and uniqueness. Its distinctive features are closely resultant from the relationship with its own territory, clearly marked by the geographical diversity.
The wealth of the mainland ranges from green and lush northwestern landscapes, passing through the winding slopes of the Douro, the interior and the coastline, the marshlands accompanying the Tejo river, the vast plains of Alentejo, and the beaches of Algarve. In the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores, the volcanic soil and the Atlantic climate gives them a unique natural wealth.
As with wines, tradition and diversity are also seen in gastronomy. Traditional meat dishes, like the typical Portuguese stew, the seafood and fresh fish, passing through the cheese and convent sweets, the Portuguese cuisine is rich and varied. And for every dish, there is a good wine to accompany.
In all wine regions we find inviting places to meet the particularities of culture, gastronomy and wine. The enotourism offered in Portugal has qualified to respond to an increasing demand. Museums, restaurants, farms and wineries open their doors, with proposals ranging from wine tasting to food and wine dinners or the most creative offers as theme cruises or sports and leisure activities in full vineyard.
Exquisite hotels or traditional houses receive and warmly invite you to prolong the unique experiences that each region has to offer.
