In Alentejo region there is many progressive and modern wineries, making red wines that offer generous fruit and mocha flavours with refined tannins from careful wood aging strategies.
White wines from the Alentejo range from mediumbodied refreshers to full-bodied similar to Chardonnay. Red wines are full-bodied typically made with Aragonês (Tempranillo), Trincadeira, Castelão, Alfrocheiro, and Alicante Bouschet.
Wines from Alentejo have a rich, smooth, and round feel on the palate, making them easier to drink when compared to other Portuguese regions.
In these warm and rugged lands, the vine is cultivated and some of the best national wines are produced. In this area the land is flat, there is plenty of space and the temperature ranges are mellower, it grows an enormous plethora of grape varieties from all over the world, in addition to the Portuguese varieties.
Alentejo wine is full of freshness and tropicality, complemented by aspects of complexity that the aging in wood and the composition of grape varieties confers. This big fertile region, a third of the country by area, is known as Portugal's gastronomic soul.
The food is neither peasant nor sophisticated, but rich with ingredients such as sheep's cheese, black pork, salt cod, wild mushrooms, and asparagus. Towns have their own specialties, such as peppery olive oils or eggyolk-based desserts.
It's this rich individuality that makes Alentejo special – and the fact that it produces almost half of Portugal's wine.
Rosé wines are fresh and fruity and ideal for snacks that the Alentejo proposes. Good with seafood, freshly grilled fish, white meats, or as an aperitif.
Cured ham, sausages, pork, and clams Alentejo style. Grilled Iberian black pork. The list of pork dishes associated with the southern Portuguese region of Alentejo certainly goes great with a young reserve red wine from this region.
