“Visited Herdade do Esporao”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

We didn't do the whole Rota dos Vinhos so I can't comment on that. We just went to Herdade do Esporao as this is a wine that my husband likes. It is a little bit hard to find just outside the village of Reguengos do Monsaraz. Don't put their address into a sat nav as this is head office address. You need to leave the village in the direction of Evora and eventually there is a sign post for Esporao - clearer signposting is needed both in the village and on the estate. They are in the process of building a brand new visitors centre but we went to the tasting room on top of the small tower. A friendly member of staff explained all the different wines to my husband although we were not offered any tastings. We bought a wide selection of wines and olive oils and have since the same wines for sale at much higher prices.

Even dough there is not time for wine making the Rota dos Vinhos is full of great sights and delicious wines. If you are ever in the area please make sure you don't miss it.

“Start at the centre in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2011

Very well informed staff in the Alentejo wine office near the theatre were helpful about suggesting different wineries to visit and knowledgeable about even the obscure one we had found on the net. Free wine tasting and plenty of publicity material available in a beautiful room that showed its origins as part of a former convent.
