Portugal is one of Europes most picturesque places, so it’s no surprise that couples flock from all over the country—and the world—to get married in this breathtaking region. The Algarve & the Alentejo, which have a rep for being slightly more laid-back than the Douro Valley is home to equally lush hillsides, rolling vineyards, and scenic pastoral views. With two stunning regions to choose from, narrowing down the best Alentejo and Algarve wedding venues is no small feat for anyone planning a wine country wedding, elopement, or rehearsal dinner in Southern Portugal. Here are some of my favorites.
01. Quinta Dos Santos
Quinta dos Santos is a family owned and operated wine farm and craft brewery, located in Western Algarve, Portugal. Measuring eight hectares in total, the farm has three hectares under vine and one hectare of new olives, being Macanilha, Galega, Verdeal and Picual varieties amongst almond, carob, and age-old olive trees. With Ann & Eugene's focus on personal relationships & creating the most exceptional experiences, you are in for the wedding of a lifetime at Quinta Dos Santos.
