Herdade do Esporão

Included in the World Wine Route, Esporão’s Wine Tourism was the first to be certified in Portugal. The production facilities can be visited by whoever is interested in discovering how Esporão Wines are made. Esporão’s surroundings are another major appealing factor and can be enjoyed in a jeep drive through the Vineyards, the Olive groves, along the Dam or, as a quiet non-pollutant version, in an original Segway drive!
More than 500 years old, the Historical Centre with its Tower, the Esporão Arch and the Ermida de Nossa Senhora dos Remédios is another must.
Afer this visit a stop at the the Wine Bar is suggested. Here you can taste various wines or different kinds of olive oil produced in Esporão. You might also want to try a Wine Course with a sommelier, making the most of the wonderful view over the Caridade Dam.
Last but not the least; you can experience the cuisine at the “Galeria do Esporão”, a restaurant where you can try the Shark Soup, fried Codfish, or the Esporão Roast.
The first company in the Wine Sector to integrate Countdown 2010, Herdade do Esporão is distinguished by its deep commitment to the protection of biodiversity.
