  • Region

    ALENTEJO, PORTUGAL - The Alentejo region covers much of the southern half of Portugal and this huge, sun-drenched area has become an important source of big, ripe, fruity, easy-drinking reds which often dominate the wine lists of Lisbon restaurants. Alentejo attained its first sub-regions in 1989, when Portugal’s entry into the EU brought large investment in vineyards and cellars, and today modern technology and techniques have made it possible to make wonderful, softer whites as well as rich reds.
