Serenada Enoturismo - The Perfect Wine Retreat

Posted by Rita Saraiva on 13-Nov-2015 11:35:51

Set on the Atlantic slope of Serra de Grândola and only ten kilometres away from the sea, Serenada Enoturismo is a small housing unit where comfort and sophistication live together with tradition and rusticity.

It belongs to the same family since the 17th century, according to a will dated of 1686. The estate offers an amazing panoramic view of the Arrábida mountains, huge pine woods and cork oak forests extending to the horizon.

Wine Tourism in Portugal has interviewed Jacinta Sobral, the owner of Serenada Enoturismo, in order to learn more about this wine producing estate in one of the best (and off the beaten path) wine regions in Portugal: Península de Setúbal.
