A trip to Vale da Rosa is always memorable, whether you’re on the pink tractor that tours the vineyards or are in the shade of the lattices enjoying a hearty lunch that tastes like Alentejo.
Close to Ferreira do Alentejo, you’ll begin to notice the pink. In the signs showing how close you are to Herdade do Vale da Rosa, in the property name, and in the tractor where we meet our visitors to take on a tour of the vineyard.
Our doors are open all year long, but you’ll have more fun visiting us during the Summer when the bunches of grapes hang from the lattices, and you can taste them. These grapes aren’t meant for making wine, so the production process is entirely different. It all begins with eating our grapes (and we hold the secret for seedless grapes), followed by a tour of the vineyards on our tractor (that, when in season, may include taking part in the harvest), and topped off by a visit to where we pack our grapes.
The shade of the lattices invites you for lunch that always tastes better amongst all the green and to the sound of “cante Alentejano”, making your visit even more complete. The menu includes typical Alentejo dishes like the gazpacho that helps cool off in the Summer days. In the end, we say goodbye with a gift basket with our grapes or local products, with some of the best delicacies of our homeland.
