Portugal is the dream wine destination full of possibilities. Today we bring you a new series of articles that will help you to get to know all the details on some of the best wineries in the country and some offers of the most publicized and unmissable local experiences. Behold today's location: Herdade da Malhadinha Nova.
Herdade da Malhadinha Nova Country House & Spa, located in Albernôa, in the heart of Baixo Alentejo, is a space of freedom, which is lost in the limitless horizon, where high-quality wines are produced and native animals are raised, in total harmony with nature.
Perfectly integrated into the bucolic landscape of the vast Alentejo plain, it offers the sweet comfort of a rural hill, where modernity and tradition intersect in a unique way. Owner of an innovative concept in Portugal, it has thematic experiences where wine and gastronomy play a fundamental role. In the cellar building, the restaurant complements the experience by offering signature cuisine, inspired by typical Alentejo dishes, recreated by a Michelin-starred Chef.
Here, time does not seem to walk, history goes back to immemorial times, the territory occupies an endless space, and one lives a day-to-day submerged in a silence that is heard. Far and close to everything, the immensity of losing sight allows you to live in privacy, harmony, and security. Isolation combined with exclusivity serves the purposes of families, groups of friends, as a couple, or alone.
Each room, suite, or villa option is unique, and the property even has its own winery, restaurant, and spa. Guests can enjoy varied experiences, such as hiking, tea tasting, archery, gastronomy workshops, fishing, wine tasting, horseback riding, gourmet picnics, yoga classes, and even treasure hunts for children.
