Évora Food Of The Gods Experience

Tour Details

​One of the great treasures of Évora is the richness, uniqueness and authenticity of its gastronomy and its wines. The Cartuxa wines are the most famous wines of Évora. Appreciated worldwide, they are the highest exponent of a wine tradition in the Alentejo that lasted at least 3000 years.

Do not miss this experience prepared just for you. In a partnership between the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation, owner of the Cartuxa wines, and Évora Cultural Experience, we prepared two exclusive menus, where the food and wine were harmonized and chosen by the “Sommelier” according to each dish. An experience of excellence and distinctive, for whom the earth tastes and the nectar of Bacchus constitutes the greatest of life pleasures. Unmissable.
