The Alentejo Wine Route welcomed more than 140.000 visitors in 2016
Created by the CVRA - Alentejo Regional Winegrowing Commission and composed by 70 wine producers from the region, the Alentejo Wine Route has seen a remarkable growth, surpassing in 2016 the barrier of 140.000 visitors.
The data was collected by CVRA itself after contacting with members of the Alentejo Wine Route, and the numbers confirm the region's commitment to enhancing wine tourism, widening the route and offering more and better information to tourists not only on wines but also on other aspects of the regional cultural and tourist reality, such as its built heritage, handicrafts, tourist and cultural animation, gastronomy, its people and it’s people.
Taking advantage of the interest of potential visitors and domestic and foreign tourists for the winemaking theme, it is intended that the Wine Route to be more than the definition on a tourist circuit map.
In addition to the route itself, the CVRA also has a Tasting Room located in the charming historical center of the city, integrated in the monumental group of Évora, a city classified by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
The Wine Tasting Room of the Alentejo Wine Route welcomes and advises winemakers to taste the best Alentejo wines. This office, which received around 8.000 visitors in 2016, works not only as a tasting room, but also as a central "starting point" to plan your trip and get to know all about wine tourism in the Alentejo.
