“Good food poor visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Definitely the marketing is not their best. There were more wines in the menu of the restaurant than in the shop to sell. We had a wine in the lunch that we couldn't buy at the shop.
In the cellar visit we only saw the oak and the stainless barrels and was it. No history, no process.
Don't spend more than the 6€ visit and if you will have luch, pay the menu prices of what you will eat.
The cod fish at lunch was good, friendly staff and wonderful view.

“5 stars Wine oriented lunch...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

It's something i'll recomend to everyone that visits Alentejo. You'll taste very good portuguese olive oil, Amazing red wine Bread, olive bread and the tradicional white bread, and olives. The food gives you the real Alentejo flavours with a more contemporary look, never loosing the essence though. And of course the wine... Riedel glasses to perfect the tasting... you can have botle or by glass so that you can taste a few! The wine is at shop price not restaurante price so you get top quality for your money. Very good meal be careful driving next...

“Winery w Lunch Restaurant - Well worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

We on the way to Monsaraz, we stopped at this out of the way Winery which has a modern building housing an excellent restaurant. It is a unique setting in the country overlooking a lake with marvelous local dishes and wines. Be prepared to spend at least two hours. Wines by the glass so you could have white with fish and reds with meat were exceptional and reasonably priced.

“Disappointing Visit”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

When one programs to go to Herdade do Esporão visit the cellars and learn a little bit more about Alentejo Wines and all the wine culture in Portugal, one has great expectations, since Herdade do Esporão is a renowned wine producer.

Well, my visit there was therefore really dispappointing. Not only the guide didn't reveal any unusual stories about the Herdade and the winemaking, but also she was very fast telling the only stories she told. In the end, we tasted two wines from the Herdade. Note: Herdade do Esporão has very good wines and a very good reputation. We tasted the 2 worst wines they produce. Which may be the only bad ones.

This is why I classify this attraction with a terrible note. I thought it was shameful and disgraceful.

“A Must Visit if You You are in the Evora Region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

My wife and I took the tour of the Esporao Winery, the tour of their Heradade (property) and ate at their wonderful restaurant. Everything was excellent. If you are used to paying high prices for European wines, the QPR here will delight you. They offer a variety of wines starting at 3 Euros a bottle. We were delighted by everything we did at this wonderful property. You will not find many better meals in Portugal. The staff is wonderfully welcoming and the property is amazing. Highly recommended to the foodie who loves his/her wine.
