About Herdade do Peso
Tucked away in the rolling landscapes of the Alentejo region’s north eastern corridor, the Herdade do Peso winery is a noteworthy gem in Portugal's wine industry. With 160 hectares dedicated solely to the cultivation of wine grapes, this winery is the epitome of understated elegance and rich Portuguese tradition.
Visitors to Herdade do Peso are greeted by the blissful vista of vinery set against the backdrop of quaint, whitewashed farmhouses. The serenity of the rural Alentejo is shattered only by the passion and bustle of the winemakers, dedicated to the creation of every bottle of nuanced and characterful wine.
The climate of the Alentejo, with its long, hot summer days and cool nights, is unrivalled for wine grape growth. Here at Herdade do Peso, the grape varieties grown include Aragonês, Alicante Bouschet Trincadeira, Alfrocheiro and Touriga Nacional: the main components in their signature, rich red blends.
But it's not all about the reds! In fact white grape varieties such as Antão Vaz and Arinto also bloom under the Alentejo sun, resulting in crisp, aromatic wines that perfectly capture the scenary fancy of their winery's vine-laden terroir.
On a guided tour through the vineyard – family-friendly and expert-led, promising insights into the history and viticulture at the heart of their operations – spectators are invited to witness the beautiful process of wine-making in action. From harvesting to crushing to fermenting, the labour of love that goes into each bottle is evident.
With tastings held within the cosy on-site Tapas bar, set amidst the beautiful landscape of the vineyard, you can sip on an exquisite glass of Alfrocheiro or Trincadeira whilst soaking up the sunset over the Alentejo hills.
Herdade do Peso is a unique mix of tradition and technology, passion and precision, proving that with love, dedication and the perfect plot. Portugal's Alentejo can produce wines to rival any in the world.
