FavoriteLoadingAdd to planner! ❤ Go to trip planner!

Adega Mayor, Wine tasting and wine activities, Alentejo is located on the border of Spain just above Badajoz in the upper Alentejo region of Portugal.
The vineyards enjoy a privileged and easy to access location, as it is only 2 driving hours from Lisbon, 3 hours from Faro and 3.5 hours from Madrid.

The vineyards where abandoned for 6 decades before the Adega Mayor under the guidance of passionate leadership was recovered starting in 1997.

“We are moved by passions. When we create something, we are always moved by something that involves a wide range of emotions, desires, people and places. It has always been this way. And it is no different in the world of wine, with the great advantage that, here, we are creating something that also has to do with a place of election: Campo Maior”. Rui Nabeiro

In 2003 the architect Siza Vieira was contracted to create the building, inspired by the nature and the clear lines of the plain, he created a modern, functional and accessible building.
