Wine of AlentejoView all products in Wine of Alentejo »
The Alentejo is a wine-producing area in Portugal, officially divided into five denominations of origin, Portalegre, Borba, Redondo, Reguengos and Vidigueira, all of them producing VQPRD wines. Statutes state that the wines from these five regions are entitled to use the denomination if strains are at least 80%.
In the Alentejo, red wines are a majority, with the exception of the DOC Vidigueira, devoted entirely to the production of white wine. Among the main strains we find, among white strains, Arinto, Galego, Ferrum, Manteúdo, Roupeiro and Rabo d'Ovelha. Among the red strains, big names such as Alfrocheiro, Moreto, Aragonez, parakeets, Trincadeira and Trinca Grossa.
In Alentejo the usual minimum aging is of 12 months before the wines are transferred to bottles.
