Dona Maria

Situated in the Portuguese region of Alentejo, this great 18th century house has become a landmark, not only because of its beauty but also due to its history and to the quality of wines produced here. Wine has been made on this Estate for over 130 years, but it was only at the beginning of the new millennium that Julio Bastos began his new project: the Dona Maria Wines. Keeping the famous marble lagares (wine presses) for the traditional “treading” of the grapes, the old wine cellar was renovated, enlarged and provided with high technology equipment.
The Quinta de Dona Maria welcomes not only those tourists from all over the world who visit Estremoz in search of history and different experiences, but also all those who wish to visit, taste and discover its wines.
The wine cellar has a tasting room, a shop and also a dining room which has been kept in its original style where, if previously booked, group lunches or dinners can be served.
