About
Designed in accordance with the traditional architecture of the Alentejo region, this winery has put Estremoz on the map of the great wine regions, welcoming visitors from all over the world. The purpose is to discover the achievements of Joao Portugal Ramos, but on the way also discover the reasons for his passion for the Alentejo. A tour or a lunch offers the time and tranquility that are perfect for enjoying our wines and the local cuisine. With a shop, tasting room, lecture room, meeting room and dining room , Vila Santa offers a welcome to those wanting to discover, taste and take home wines that will leave a perfect memory of this region. Our five senses all come into play when we travel. Food and drink is part of many people’s tourist experience and the best way to truly grasp the terroir of a wine is to visit where it’s made. Vila Santa tour offers you a visit to the vineyards, the winery, and cellars, where the vinification process is explained to the visitors. You have the opportunity to choose between a wine tasting accompanied by regional cheeses and a selection of different appetizers according to the seasons products or a typical Alentejo lunch , “be a winemaker for a day” or take a cooking class, where culture, tradition and the character of our wines come in complete harmony, promising a unique and unforgettable experience . During harvest time it’s also possible to take part in grape picking and foot-trodding in old marble "lagares" (stone troughs).

    A great tour
    The guided tour was very interesting. The tour guide, Marcia, walked us through the precinct and gave us a great lecture on the history of the Joao Portugal Ramos winery. At the end of the tour we had the opportunity to taste 4 of the wines they produce. Great experience overall. I look forward to come back some day.
    Thank you very much for the words. We are happy to know that people enjoy their experience at the winery. Hope to see you soon!!

    Great Vineyard in the heart of Alentejo
    Absolutely loved the visit here. The winery was beautiful, the tour was informative, and the tasting was not rushed. The friendly staff took their time to explain each wine they poured. Also, they have the best olive oil I've had in a long time. Overall, I could not recommend this place enough.

We were very disappointed when we sat down to our winery lunch, to discover that Portugal Trails had signed us up for the cheaper lunch menu. No one had ever asked us about our choice of menu, and we had no idea whatsoever that there was more than one option. We felt upset when we had to watch the other participants being served a far more elaborate lunch and they even asked us if we were vegetarians based on the skimpy and cheap lunch we received. They blamed it on Portugal Trails.

Lucia the guide was lovely, very knowledgeable, and passionate about the wines and the winery. We also met the owner's wife who was wonderful. We enjoyed the architecture, the paintings, and the furnishings. Marianna the food server was delightful and a lot of fun. The wines were excellent and paired well with the delicious lunch. The overall experience was superb and we highly recommend this winery to anyone who appreciates great food paired with good wine.

Very nice visitor buildings. Tour of winery interesting, but typical.
Lunch was outstanding with 5 or 6 courses and paired wines, every one great. Meal service was excellent.
Not sure what it cost as it was arranged by our tour planner - Portugal Trails - but it was well worth it.

We booked an 1130 tour and lunch appointment. We were greeted by Tania. She was welcoming and engaging, sharing lots of great information with us about the vineyard and the winemaking process at JPR. After the tour, she turned us over to Lucia for the tasting and lunch. Again, great information about each wine, how and where it was made, the vintage notes, and the lunch was a delicious affair. We loved this experience, and it was especially bright because of Tania and Lucia.

Even though we have seen dozens of wineries, this one taught us new things, even where we didn't expect to. We are from California Wine Country and didn't want the standard tour. Fortunately, JPR Wines was listening and we got a personalized tour and tasting.

The wines were very good and we were able to sample across several of Portugal's wine regions without having to travel to each one. We also learned about the local growing conditions and challenges.

The personal touch was what really set Joao Portugal Ramos Wines apart. The care and attention to detail was wonderful.

We visited this winery with no reservation but they accommodated us in the next tour available. It was in Portuguese but we speak Spanish, so it wasn’t that difficult. Tour was informative and the place itself is very nice. Delicious wines and olive oil to taste. They gave us chips, bread and cheese to accompany the wine which was super cool.

We dropped in for an unscheduled tasting and was warmly welcomed by Sofia, who took time to answer our questions and exchange ideas on the differences between the North American wine production processes we use and those practiced in Alentejo. The facility is top rate and expanding. We very much enjoyed the wines and olive oil we tasted. Sofia's English was excellent and she helped us improve our Portugese pronunciations. We've stopped in at wineries and tasting rooms around the world and this was a very good comparative experience.
