When driving to the winery you get a good feel of the size of the farm. It also gives you a good feel of the work needed to get it right. The water, the hight of the plants in order to use machines, the climate change and name it. We had booked a lunch and a wine tasting and a tour. We started with the lunch. What a great experience! The entourage is modern Scandic style. Staff is friendly. The food is great and very creative. Good wines to go with this culinary lunch.
I recommend to have lunch there! It is an experience..

After the lunch we went for the wine tasting. We decided to taste the difference between Alentejo and Duro wines. Nicely done!

The tour was short and done by a nice and friendly lady. The caves are impressive.

We have been enjoying Esporao's V (verdhelo) for the last couple of years so planning a visit to the winery was easy. The tour is very straight forward and takes less than an hour. We have been to many wineries so this was not out of the ordinary. The wine tasting afterward was done very nicely.

I have been in Herdade do Esporao for the visit 13 years ago and its quality was good. The old glory times are gone in Esporao.
The visit price and tasting is a 'tourist trap' - 15 euro?!!. The visit quality and information are poor and the visits are for mass tourism.

There are other vineyards in the surrounding that organize visit for free (Adega Ervideira).
As a term of comparison, in Palmela region - 'Quinta da Bacalhoa' (near Lisbon) the visit to the impressive museum (a real artdeco museum), winery and wine tasting costs 3 euro.

We arrived early for the wine tour. It was nice to see the tractor come in piled high with grapes. The process continued, grapes turned in large container with left overs going out to another wagon for other uses. Our guide was very informative taking us through varied process to deliver these tasty wines.

We had a wander around the area before the gourmet lunch.

Lunch was an absolute delight with so many courses of delightful cuisine served alongside a variety of wines to compliment. Memorable flavours with lots of oos and ahhs!
With first class service too!

You have just got to book in and enjoy.
