About
Designed in accordance with the traditional architecture of the Alentejo region, this winery has put Estremoz on the map of the great wine regions, welcoming visitors from all over the world. The purpose is to discover the achievements of Joao Portugal Ramos, but on the way also discover the reasons for his passion for the Alentejo. A tour or a lunch offers the time and tranquility that are perfect for enjoying our wines and the local cuisine. With a shop, tasting room, lecture room, meeting room and dining room , Vila Santa offers a welcome to those wanting to discover, taste and take home wines that will leave a perfect memory of this region. Our five senses all come into play when we travel. Food and drink is part of many people’s tourist experience and the best way to truly grasp the terroir of a wine is to visit where it’s made. Vila Santa tour offers you a visit to the vineyards, the winery, and cellars, where the vinification process is explained to the visitors. You have the opportunity to choose between a wine tasting accompanied by regional cheeses and a selection of different appetizers according to the seasons products or a typical Alentejo lunch , “be a winemaker for a day” or take a cooking class, where culture, tradition and the character of our wines come in complete harmony, promising a unique and unforgettable experience . During harvest time it’s also possible to take part in grape picking and foot-trodding in old marble "lagares" (stone troughs).

Tour, Tastings and a Killer Lunch Await You!
Mar 2020 • Couples
I have toured wineries in a number of countries, but this one will always rate highest in my memories. We showed up at the gorgeous Joao Portugal Ramos estate on a perfect March morning for a tour, tasting and lunch we had arranged through (the awesome) Portugal Trails agency. Acres if perfectly trimmed vines, cork and olive trees surround the fairly new, ultra modern winery. We were so extremely lucky, we were the only visitors on this perfect morning, and had the place entirely to ourselves. Our lovely young tour guide Tania gave us an introduction and took us through the processing and aging facilities, then up to the courtyard and dining room atop the property. We had our couverte (appetizer) course on a nice big outdoor picnic table with views of their most Tuscan-like estate. We then went into the splendidly appointed dining room, where we were served a four course lunch of a delicious pumpkin soup, followed by a 5-star duck risotto and cucumber salad, a nice cheese selection and a desert medley that included their chocolate sin cake. Noone could push away from that table unimpressed! Oh, and did I mention this is a winery? Each course was accompanied by a generous serving of most excellent whites and reds. Sorry we cannot comment on their port, which we had to politely decline. Im sure it was as awesome as the table fare we were served in considerably greater profusion than your usual estate “tasting.” We have been all over this gorgeous country on our two week tour, but hours spent at this property are and remain one of our most cherished Portuguese experiences. Thank you Tania and staff. A first class experience, and a first rate wine property.

Great wine, great tour, great staff

Rita lead us on an informative and interesting tour around the beautiful winery learning about the wine making process, the effects of weather and soil on the wines and how even something like playing music in the wine cellars can improve taste! Finished with fantastic wines to taste and delicious local bread and cheese.
Highly recommended!

Nice tasting room with good choices. Suggest sharing the cost of wine tasting. We went for the high end Alientejo wines since we wanted to bring them home.

Best Day in Portugal
Sep 2019 • Friends
This was an amazing experience. We booked the kitchening with wine & make your own wine classes. Marcia was amazing! She showed us around the winery & explained the wine making process, types of wines, how grapes are grown, soil quality, etc. Then we made our own duck rice & dessert. It was delicious. We experimented with multiple grape varieties & picked the best combination for a take home sample. We spent all day in the area for a relaxing excursion from Lisbon. The local town was really special. We went there after for the sunset. I can't say enough about this winery & the people. Highly recommend!

Me and my husband had thiswine-tasting experience for the first time. The guided tour was very interesting, the guide was very friendly and up to date on the specifics of the business. The area is beautiful and the selection of wine in “tasting experience number 2” is delicious (4 wines, 2 whites, 2 reds, plus bread and cheese). Enjoy!

Amazing
May 2019 • Friends
I’ve been to many wine tastings in Napa and Sonoma. This one was the best I’ve ever been to. The setting, the history, the tour, the food, and the knowledgeable and friendly staff all made this a unique experience. And the wines! The wines were just extraordinary! They were so different and so interesting compared to what we have in the US.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. It was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Portugal.

Fantastic experience
May 2019 • Couples
We base our holidays around trips to vineyards and have been to many across the world. This was certainly the most outstanding visit/experience we have ever had. The staff are so friendly that you immediately feel at home. We booked for 2 days - the kitchen experience, the wine blending one and also the extended tapas. We met Mr Ramos who was so friendly and welcomed us back on our second day like long lost friends. The kitchen experience was such fun, cooking a 3 course lunch menu. My husband was given 3 single grape varieties to play and blend his own wine and then was give a bottle in a box of his preferred one. The olive oil and vinegar at lunch are excellent so we bought some as presents. We were moving onto the Algarve and they arranged to ship cases of wine down there for us for our daughter's wedding the following week. Nothing was too much trouble and we will certainly be back!

Lovely Visit
Feb 2019 • Couples
The wine tasting JP Ramos was absolutely lovely. We had an afternoon here before wandering around Estremoz (which is also worth an visit). The wines are fabulous, the tasting is very informative, and the woman who administered the tasting was so welcoming and very knowledgeable about JP Ramos winemaking as well as Portuguese wines in general. The estate is also stunning and if you're looking to buy a few bottles for later, the value is incredible! Highly recommend and would love to come back again for another visit!

Wonderful Experience
Sep 2018 • Couples
João Portugal Ramos is a great experience and goes above and beyond just a winery tour. We had a tour of the beautiful property and learned about their wine making process followed by a tasting. Following that we had a personal cooking class that was a ton of fun and was delicious. The staff were wonderful and made a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. Highly recommend visiting if you're in Alentejo.
