In an old 1974 safari-style Land-rover you will explore the traditional cork forests of the Alentejo.
The farm you will visit is a paradise for walkers and wine lovers with rolling hills, cork forests, olive groves and vineyards in a landscape occasionally broken by a medieval fortress or an abandoned chapel. For six generations, the family owners have made a living on the 1,400-acre estate in the Alentejo by sustainably managing cork forests, rearing sheep and making fine wines.
During your tour, your guide will explain to you everything about the cork trees, cork cycle (cork stripping, cork storage, cork manufacturing). You will also learn about local fauna and flora, honey production, vineyards, Iberian pig fattening, olive groves and all the farm activities.
When you return to the farmhouse you will enjoy a tasting of wine produced in the area.
