Alentejo

The region in Portugal is located between the capital Lisbon in the north, the border with Spain in the east, the Algarve region in the south and the Atlantic Ocean in the west. Within the area defined as DOC, with 20,000 hectares of vineyards, there are eight sub-areas: Borba, Évora, Granja-Amareleja, Moura, Portalegre, Redondo, Reguengos and Vidigueira. These were previously declared as independent DOC areas (which still appears on older labels), but are now listed as optional sub-areas alongside the Alentejo DOC area. The entire region is also classified as IGP (formerly VR) for local wines under the name Alentajano.
