The old town of Évora in southern Portugal, surrounded by Roman city walls, was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The Portuguese kings had themselves elected here since the 12th century. In addition to viticulture, the hilly landscape is also home to olive groves and cork oaks. The former IPR area (precursor to DOC) named after the town became one of the eight sub-areas of the Alentejo DOC area in 2003 (see there).

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
