In the immediate vicinity of the oldest known Roman winery in the Iberian Peninsula, we will arrive at a winery characterized by having its vineyards in a unique terroir for wine production. Their winery is defined by its natural and sustainable methods with a production that is 100% certified. The building is partially coated in shale, highlighting and integrating simultaneously with fluidity in the surrounding landscape. The accompanying contemporary art collection is surprising, not only because of its spatial arrangement but because you can feel this family’s passion for culture. The wine sampling of the winery goes hand in hand with their typical Alentejo snacks and a marvelous view over the scrupulously aligned vineyards of the property.
In Évora, art will be our excuse to get to know the town that UNESCO has classified as a World Heritage site. Our focus will be on both art and culture, knowing that they are intimately linked throughout history.
A luxurious hotel waits for you at the end of the day. This 15th century palace keeps its magnificent chapel and vaulted ceilings, as well as three Manueline windows on the main façade. However, this exquisite boutique hotel was built according to the concepts of contemporary architecture and design.
We will visit one of the most noble and strategic points of this city as well as a unique set of frescoes dating from the 16th century. In a single place, you’ll find immaculate 19th-century paintings, 16th-century galleries, Manueline-Mudejar windows, gothic portals and secular tapestries.
Before we leave Évora behind, we will highlight the richness of its historical center. We will take a short break to taste the delicious typical flavors of the region.
Just half an hour away from Évora, architecture as an art form will also be addressed in the afternoon. We’ll visit a landscaped paradise, whose essence is a tribute to nature, fully respecting Andy Warhol’s quote, “Having land and not spoiling it is the most beautiful form of art.” This is an innovative project with a respect for nature at its heart and an attractive terroir that is expressed in its wines.
The visit to the innovative winery ends with a special wine sampling in an equally stunning space.
