Our Wine Tourism now includes new spaces for learning and tasting, as well as a restaurant with new suggestions and facilities, in order to reinforce the experience of the territory and the universe of wines and olive oils produced on the Estate.
SKREI, the Porto architecture firm, which had already designed the Lagares Winery project, joined Esporão once again in this renovation. Most evident are the changes made to the restaurant, tasting rooms and cellar. The firm sought to unify the different atmospheres that characterise the diversity of experiences offered by the Wine Tourism operation, using materials recovered from the Estate’s industry and activity, namely oak from the barrels, the soils and sheep’s wool.
Among the main news are the visits to the new Olive Oil Mill, tasting historic wines in the company’s new cellar, and thematic olive oil and wine tasting in the garden’s new area.
Visits to the vineyards, the Lagares Winery, the ampelographic field and the Historic Centre, among others, are enhanced with some new features, such as blind tasting with sensorial exercises, where visitors can challenge their senses to discover different wine profiles and, as of May, new tours to enjoy the outdoor space.
The restaurant offers a seasonal menu that highlights the origin of the products and reinterprets gastronomic traditions, following the principles of “zero waste”. The menu also includes, on a monthly basis, one of the dishes inspired by the recipes in Esporão & A Comida Portuguesa a Gostar Dela Própria (Esporão and Portuguese Cuisine Enjoying Itself). The team of chefs – Carlos Teixeira, Bruno Caseiro and Filipa Gonçalves – created a simple and relaxed offer that encourages interaction and sharing.
According to António Roquette, head of Herdade do Esporão’s Wine Tourism, “this development of our offer aimed to improve the experience of visiting the Estate, making it more accessible, intuitive and integrated, enabling us to show the unique characteristics of our land and our production models.”
