D.O.C. - Alentejo
The Alentejo is where Portugal's climate finally escapes the Atlantic influence and the scenery changes to vast open plains that experience baking hot summers and cold winters more typical of continental weather systems.
Think of it as Portugal's "new world", with the potential to make bold, ripe wines reminiscent of the sun.
Some white wine is being produced in the Alentejo. However, the red wine is building the reputation of this region. Due to a combination of large estates and a very consistent and reliable climate, Alentejo has the advantage of combining quality and affordable pricing.
