In Alentejo: Carmim Winery, Monsarez & a castle!

November 2, 2009

Evora Roman Aquaduct from Hotel M'ar de ArSMThe only castles I have ever seen were produced by Walt Disney.

But last night when I saw the walled city of Evora for the first time, I realized that this was REAL! I was NOT in Disneyland! And certainly not Kansas!

And today, I will get to see a REAL castle. Snow White and the Dwarves may not live there, but that’s fine with me. I went to Disneyland last month.

Since this is a wine trip sponsored by Enoforum Wines which produces wine from this, the Alentejo region, today will also feature tasting Carmim Wines at the winery we will see the vineyards and  also learn also about their olive oil production. Then back to Evora for dinner.

I promise to take as many pictures as possible and share them! But if I don’t get going soon, I am going to be very late!

In the meantime, here’s one of the Roman aquaduct that I can see from my room in the Hotel M’Ar de Ar…not just from my room but from the giant luxurious bathtub as well!
