As for our tour of Alentejo wine tasting . . . we stopped after Ervideira. We learned so much about the wine of the region, in such a short amount of time.
We were tasked with the difficult job of learning more about the Italian sparkling wine. It’s a trip we started to refer to, happily, as #BolognaBubbles.
That is how we found our way ninety minutes outside Lisbon, on a vineyard tour in Alentejo. Before that we really didn’t even know what Alentejo wine was.
I never imagined I would be sitting down for an amazing meal, at an organic winery, in the foothills of Bologna, to have lunch with an Italian winemaker. But, that is exactly what Yummy Italy organized during our day touring Emilia Romagna.
We pulled up to Corte d’Aibo, after a winding drive through the hills south of Bologna. The organic vineyard includes a series of buildings, including an old farmhouse that has been turned into an agritourismo, complete with guest rooms. The property overlooks vineyards, wheat fields, and fruit trees. On one side lies a biolake, a freshwater pool with a natural filtration system. On the other side, a rustic farmhouse restaurant, with a wrap around porch, overlooking the hillside.
