    Spanning over 700 hectares, Herdade do Esporão stands tall as Portugal's largest organic estate. Nestled in Alentejo’s Reguengos Sub-Region, its rocky soils and dramatic climate form the backbone for wines that are robust yet enticingly graceful. The estate's legacy, traced back to 1267, is symbolized by an iconic white tower, marking the transition from medieval to modern Portugal. Guided by the Roquette family, the winery champions sustainability and organic practices, honoring nature's gifts responsibly. Alentejo, a vital force in Portugal's wine industry, boasts eight subregions cultivating exceptional grapes, with Reguengos de Monsaraz standing out for its elevated terrains and ideal winemaking conditions. Melding traditional practices with modern techniques like controlled irrigation and temperature management, Alentejo continues to craft wines of exceptional quality, where white blends and red varieties, including Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet, and Castelão, personify the region's allure—an exquisite blend of heritage, innovation, and natural splendor.
