No matter the time of the year, a romantic getaway is always a good idea.
During the first couple of weeks of April 2016, I was a guest of Wine Tourism in Portugal, the main wine tourism booking portal in Portugal, in the Alentejo to write de Alentejo Wine Travel Guide. My mission was to explore what the NY Times described as the “New Tuscany”, offering you the ultimate guide to travelling the Alentejo through its wine. In this guide, you will find recommendations for the best wine hotels, the best Restaurants, the Best Wineries, the Best Food&Wine experiences in the Alentejo.
After coming across a fantastic article written by Wine Enthusiast's European Editor, Roger Voss, we could not wait to share it here with all the Wine Lovers and Travelers that follow our Blog!
We were thrilled to see Alentejo distinguished as one of 10 Best Wine Travel Destinations for 2016, but, most of all, we were particularly proud to verify that the quality and commitment to excellence of our business partners is starting to be more and more recognized!
It really is rewarding to evidence the unique spaces, wine producing estates, hotels and restaurants where we take our clients to enjoy the best wine experience of their lives in Portugal, deserving this kind of distinction!
If you are a wine lover or a traveler, you must have already heard about Douro Region in Portugal, but if you have not already had the chance to get to know it, Wine Tourism in Portugal created the perfect Tours for you to experience the best this trendy destination has to offer.
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.
Last month, I was privileged to visit The Yeatman Hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, near all the Port Wine Cellars. The Yeatman is arguably the best wine hotel in the world, a luxury haven for good food, good wines and the best views of Porto.
It is one of those places where everything works out as planned, where you can see that every little detail in the hotel’s operation was thought in the planning stage. As an ex-hotelier, I can tell you that this makes a huge difference in the way you experience the Yeatman hotel as a guest.
