Herdade dos Grous, Winery
Herdade dos Grous, Albernôa, 7800-601, Beja - Alentejo
The cellar Herdade do Grous has the guidance of the renowned oenologist Luís Duarte. He is responsible for the making of the best wines of this farm.
The cellar (built in 2005) uses the latest technology together with the traditional methods of wine making. All the grapes that arrive to the cellar are selected manually on a table and the wine is produced by the gentle macerating of each grape variety, in order to ensure its excellent quality.
The wine is stored under optimal conditions of humidity and temperature in barrels of French and American oak, so that the wine can age in excellent conditions. Following this process, the wine maker labels the different wine brands in accordance to the type of wine. Each wine has its own individual quality.
The architecture of the cellar perfectly fits harmoniously in the typical landscape of Alentejo. You can also fund here a restaurant, a wine bar and a wine shop.
During the tours to the cellars you will learn the different stages of the production of the wine: the maceration, the fermentation and ageing. In the end you can enjoy different tasting of the wines produced in the Herdade.
The Herdade is located between Barragem do Roxo lagoon and the Natural Park of Guadiana.
Lisbon airport is 180 km. (111 mi.) away and Faro airport 140 km. (86 mi.). The Herdade is nearly110 km. (68 mi.) away from VILA VITA Parc Resort & Spa.
You can access the Herdade through the A2 motorway that connects Lisbon to the Algarve and taking the exit number 12 towards Castro Verde / Beja. After passing Albernôa, we advise you to exit on the first road on the left side.
