Wine Tourism

Located in eastern Alentejo, the village of Pias is recognized in Portugal for the great quality of its wines, elaborated mainly with grape varieties from the region. The success of these wines originated some less proper ways of tribute: Not all wines that call themselves “Pias” are in fact made here.

So, if you want to know the unique characteristics of our “terroir”, you have arrived at the right place: the Margaça Wines (Soc. Agr. de Pias, S.A.), where the original and true wines of Pias are produced.

Around the village of Pias, on the left bank of the river Guadiana, are located the 800 hectares of the estate of the Agricultural Society of Pias, distributed in five properties: Monte Branco, Monte Velho de Cima, Monte Velho de Baixo, Monte da Parreira and Monte da Torre.

With gentle elevations, varied soils, of great natural beauty, the estate has vineyards, olive groves, open fields and ravines, several water points and many areas for sport hunting.

Here you will hear about stories, taste the wines and the richness of gastronomy. During the harvest, visitors can learn about our methods of production. The tour is done throughout the cellar, starting at our reception area, fermentation tanks, caves, bottling, labelling and packing unit, and of course, our store, with exclusive offers at attractive prices that can be only found in our winery shop.

The Pias Wine Museum and an old distillery are other points of interest, with artefacts from Pias wine history, also the “Wine Tourism Room” is prepared to host wine presentations with degustation, events as the typical “Cante Alentejano” (Alentejo’s Singing) and corporate and private events.
