Great Wineries. Amazing wine from Alentejo. Service by Wine Tourism Portugal was great since the alternative was to call directly each Quinta, which I had tried before and had not worked.
You will discover the Monte da Ravasqueira. Connected to José de Mello's family for several generations, Monte da Ravasqueira is located in the municipality of Arraiolos, one hour away from Lisbon, and covers a vast area of the typical Alentejo landscape.
