Based at Quinta de Valbom, 2km from the centre of the World Heritage city of Evora and just 200m from the Cartuxa Monastery from which it takes its name, Cartuxa Wine Tourism is run from the old refectory in the former Jesuit retreat.
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.
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 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.

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.
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.
Revel in the delights of Cartuxa wines, also available by the glass, and the rich, local cuisine.
