DAY 3 | ESTREMOZ - BORBA
Estremoz, the "white city". Owns this name because of its white house spread along a hill, and for the deposits of white marble, the famous "Marble of Estremoz". Land of hard work, it is also land hospitable and peaceful, secularly proud of its extensive vineyards.
The vineyards that give rise to Quinta do Carmo wine are installed in a valley next to the foothills of Serra D´Ossa on clay-schist terrains. This is the ideal ''terroir'' that allows grapes to mature very slowly, thus producing very elegant and concentrated wines.
Borba is a beautiful Alentejo city, known for its important wine production, one of the most famous in the country and already with an excellent international reputation. Well bodied, with a color and strong palate, it can be enjoyed at the annual Wine and Vine Festival.At Quinta do Zambujeiro we have a wine tourism experience of excellence, when embarking on a unique journey around the productive universe, from the grape to the glass.
DAY 4 | REDONDO - REGUENGOS DE MONSARAZ - ESTREMOZ
Redondo is a beautiful Alentejo village, famous for its clay products and quality wine. It is an area that has traces of occupation since distant times in prehistory. The combination of fertile, granite and shale soils makes it possible to produce one of the region's greatest assets, the wine, which is one of the D.O.C. from the country.
Reguengos grew up around the old and historic town of Monsaraz. This is a region known for the excellent wines produced locally. Known as "Ninho das Águias" (Eagles Nest) and with a population of only a few hundred, it is entirely pedestrian, with only two main streets. Its landscape takes on a magical quality, full of fields carefully cultivated and bathed in the sun, dotted with cork oaks and olive trees.The "Herdade São Lourenço do Barrocal", owned by the same family for over 200 years, has a vast 150,000 square meters of vineyards. Here, on this Alentejo hill, we create connections to the land, and we feel part of it.
