Wine Harvest Experience in Vidigueira - Alentejo

137,00 €  

One of the most important Portuguese poets, Florbela Espanca, born in Vila Viçosa, described Alentejo in a passionate way, as is the case of the poem “My Alentejo”.

It is a region that arouses passions, that awakens our soul and makes us want to know more and better. Alentejo is one of the most beautiful regions of the country, requires a long narrative, with a continued presence and attentive in time and space, something that cannot be revealed here at all. The region breathes a history steeped in periods of turmoil and peace. A land where culture and tradition go hand in hand. There is something profoundly reinvigorating and redeemer in Alentejo, in the endless space, the vastness of the plains with large oak trees, the wide sky in a spotless blue, the infinite horizon and, obviously, in its people, the quiet people, honest and proud of Alentejo.
