Cortes de Cima, Vidigueira
(5/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Since the 80's, Cortes de Cima estate has been home to Hans and Carrie Jorgensen, a Danish/American couple who sailed the world in a small boat, to find a place to start a vineyard. Today, it is a showcase property, with oak and olive trees, wheat fields, 150 hectare of vineyards, and not least of all, a modern winery, where the Jorgensens craft their cult wines. Among these are Incógnito, because it was - and still is - made with illegal Syrah grapes. Incógnito won acclaim and medals from wine critics everywhere, so now, Syrah is authorized to be grown in the Alentejo.

  • It wasn't just a tasting, but a trip back in time with the excellent explanation of the José about the history of Cortes de Cima.

Highly recommend this visit!
