Description:

Designed in accordance with the traditional architecture of the Alentejo...

Designed in accordance with the traditional architecture of the Alentejo region, this winery has put Estremoz on the map of the great wine regions, welcoming visitors from all over the world. The purpose is to discover the achievements of Joao Portugal Ramos, but on the way also discover the reasons for his passion for the Alentejo. A tour or a lunch offers the time and tranquility that are perfect for enjoying our wines and the local cuisine. With a shop, tasting room, lecture room, meeting room and dining room , Vila Santa offers a welcome to those wanting to discover, taste and take home wines that will leave a perfect memory of this region.

Our five senses all come into play when we travel. Food and drink is part of many people’s tourist experience and the best way to truly grasp the terroir of a wine is to visit where it’s made.

Vila Santa tour offers you a visit to the vineyards, the winery, and cellars, where the vinification process is explained to the visitors.

You have the opportunity to choose between a wine tasting accompanied by regional cheeses and a selection of different appetizers according to the seasons products or a typical Alentejo lunch , “be a winemaker for a day” or take a cooking class, where culture, tradition and the character of our wines come in complete harmony, promising a unique and unforgettable experience . During harvest time it’s also possible to take part in grape picking and foot-trodding in old marble "lagares" (stone troughs).

Depending on the tasting you have chosen you try a number of different wines, all very good quality, with bread,... More

Thank you for your nice comment. If you book in advance, you will have no problema with the visist and the tasting . If you just turn up, and if we are free, we always try to make the visist and the tasting, sometimes people just turn up and we are full, in that case it is more difficult for... More

Thorough private tour with tasting and tapas. We met the gracious owner. He's like the Robert Mondovi of Alentejo wine area. Lovely area with super wines at low prices. Darn, suitcases only had room for nine bottles. When we got back to our hotel, the clerk said this is her favorite winery, but she's never met the owner and would... More

There are only a few wineries in this area that are set up for independent travelers interested in wine tasting. In our experience, most wineries cater to tour groups. J. Portugal Ramos is better organized for visitors but you still you need to book in advance, even if you only want a tasting and not a tour. And, you have... More

Visited the winery without booking and unfortunately didn't get to try the wines. I showed up within the opening hours I found but wasn't aware of the need for booking. However the aim point is that if one makes the effort to visit your winery it is standard to at least get to try the wines. You may apologize for... More

I recently visited Joao Portugal Ramos during the harvest. It was a fantastic experience to see the production of the wine, the facilities and to top it off taste some great wines! I would recommend a visit to the winery if you are in the area.

A great Alentejo wine maker. We visited the Adega, located within sight of the 12th century tower of Estremoz. Wines well worth taking home to the U.S.
