The colours and scents of Quinta do Quetzal change with the seasons. The warm fragrance of the brown-eyed rockroses in the spring is replaced by the smell of must a few months later. At the same time, in the border hill, the vineyard goes from green, to red, and to complete bareness in the winter. Always under the unperturbed surveillance of the three pine trees.

A trip to Quinta do Quetzal can last a whole day. Not because it’s a large space, but for all there is to do and the slow pace the place imposes on you. When you get here, take the path on the left to the reception. That’s where you pick up the picnic baskets that you’ll take uphill, to the tables and benches in the shade of three leafy pine trees.

We believe that, like Alentejo itself, modern art is just apparently plain. That’s why we thought Quinta do Quetzal would be the ideal place for a centre of Modern Art. We have temporary exhibitions in addition to the permanent collection, and entrance is free.

After that, and because wine is the heart of Quinta do Quetzal, no tour is complete without visiting our winery, to the sound of classical music because we firmly believe that the sound waves improve our wine.

From the top of the winery, the view is unparalleled: a 360-degree perspective of the neighbouring chapel of Nossa Senhora da Guadalupe, the vineyards, and the valleys around it. Above all, we like to offer a sensory experience thanks to the scents and the colours that are our calling card.
