The Alentejo denomination of origin is found in the Portuguese region of the same name which means "beyond the gorge". This area is divided into 8 regions, whichhad independent denominations of origin, in the past, but which now conform the Alentejo DOC.
The Alentejo DOC has more than 19,000 hectares of vineyards. A stable climate, although according to some experts, a bit too hot.
Among the best strains, we can find periquita, bastardo and the trincadeira. The latter one is the one which produces the most elegant wines. For white wines, there is the arinto, perrum and manteado vines.
Some of the best wines are Esporao, Quinta do Mouro and Quinta do Carmo. Currently, Portugal is a wine paradise, since this area has many autoctonous strains, and it is good that this is maintained and that the introduction of globalized strains, such as Sauvignon, among others, is avoided.
