The uniqueness of this area, a popular draw for locals, is also highlighted by its contemporary lay-out
The Cartuxa Winery offers visitors a programme of guided tours, ending with a tasting of wines and olive oils. The tour takes about 90 minutes.
The character of Cartuxa wines is imbued with the unique geography of the Alentejo and the business philosophy of Cartuxa, which is built on hard work, human and technological expertise and sustainability.
Olive oil is one of the key products of the Eugenio de Almeida Foundation. Olive oil is an iconic product of the Alentejo and has been part of the Mediterranean diet for 6,000 years.
The Cartuxa Winery (Adega) at Monte de Pinheiros is equipped with the latest and most sophisticated technology. Some three million bottles a year come off the bottling line, containing white, red, rose and Cartuxa sparkling wine.
Authenticate your bottle
Starting with the 2011 vintage, all bottles of red Pêra-Manca will display a seal of authenticity which reassures the buyer that they have acquired a genuine bottle.
Cartuxa is the umbrella brand of Adega Cartuxa, Lagar Cartuxa and Enoturismo Cartuxa (Cartuxa Winery, Olive Mill and Wine Tourism, respectively). It is also the identifying brand of EA, Foral de Evora, Cartuxa, Scala Coeli and Pera-Manca wines, as well as Alamos, EA and Cartuxa olive oils.
The Foundation’s vineyards are a valuable part of its patrimony, planted according to stringent criteria of soil type, relief and sun exposure.
Reducing our carbon footprint is therefore imperative and the greenest way to live today.
Olive oil is a key agricultural product of the Eugenio de Almeida Foundation. There are currently some 400 hectares of olive grove on its estates.
The perfect blend of culture, gastronomy, excellent wines, beaches, sun and history. Add its generous and welcoming people to the mix and you have the ideal holiday destination.
"Tudo é tranquilo, e casto, e sonhador… Olhando esta paisagem que é uma tela de Deus, eu penso então: onde há pintor, onde há artista de saber profundo, que possa imaginar coisa mais bela, mais delicada e linda neste mundo?!" Florbela Espanca
A modern, fully-automated facility ensures extraction of top quality olive oil. As we are environmentally aware, we have installed a treatment centre to recycle water used in production which is used to irrigate our olive groves.
