Wine Turism 


Founded in 1927, Aliança Vinhos de Portugal has already over 80 years of life and history, it is currently a reference point in the wine sector and has a clear strategy for the Wine Tourism.
At ALIANÇA it is possible to experience a new concept of Wine and Art visiting both attractions.
Being “Art, Wine and Passion” the signing of the Group, Aliança sought to associate a cultural component that allows a visitor’s emotional connection with the company and its wines. In this context comes the creation of a unique and distinctive museum, the Aliança Underground Museum, developed over the traditional underground galleries of the company. Opened on April 24, 2010, is the first underground museum, and features eight permanent collections that cover areas such as archeology, ethnography, mineralogy, paleontology, ceramic tiles, tins and Indian culture. Integrated in the great universe of the Berardo Collection, these collections are the result of constant care of the collector José Berardo, in immunizing pieces and works of art from multiple sources and species, with both historical and sentimental meanings, which are derived from most varied imaginary, a gathering of people, places, beliefs and cultures, in perfect symbiosis with the wines, sparkling wines and brandies produced by the company.
