Lisbon: Private Evora Tour with Wine Tasting

4. Lisbon: Private Evora Tour with Wine Tasting

Your day begins with a visit to a farmhouse, where you will learn that cork is the bark of the cork oak, a variety of oak. Portugal is responsible for 55% of the world's cork production, which is valued worldwide for decorative cork coatings used for things such as walls and floors. Your tour will then progress to the historical center of Evora, where you will discover the ancient Temple of Diana next to the Evora Cathedral, which was built during the Roman period. Alentejo wine has a unique profile, something that seems impossible to happen in a region of hot and dry climate. This makes it indispensable to add water to the vine, with soils and reliefs a very sunny zone allowing the perfect maturation of the grapes. This is a practically flat region that produces white wines that are generally soft, slightly acidic, and have aromas of tropical fruits. The red wines are full bodied and rich in tannin, with aromas of wild and red fruits. Your tour includes a visit to one of these wineries with a tasting. It is also possible to visit Monsaraz, but you will be forced to cut the wine tour short in order to time to make both. At the conclusion of your day, you will return to Lisbon.
