  •  Welcome to Malhadinha: as a welcome drink we prepared a selection of wine from the most planted grape varieties in Alentejo: Roupeiro and Antão Vaz, paired with traditional Alentejo treats prepared by our Kitchen Team.
  • Arriving at the room, you will be welcomed with your astral chart for consultation. Did we get it right?
  • Tour around the property and winery, followed by a wine tasting* that will address the subject “the Sun’s importance in producing the different types of Portuguese and world wines”, Late Harvests, Tokays, Pedro Gimenez among others. In Ancient Rome, the most enjoyed wines were the sweetest, produced from grapes that were ripened by the Sun.
  • The dinner in the first day will be in the Barrels Cellar, inspired by medieval gastronomy accompanied by liturgical live music. Katerina Nakuripara, teacher at Flores Musicae, School of Talents, on piano and voice, invites Savva Pereverzer on violin, and Pietr Pereverzer on guitar.
  • Back in our room, dive into this program’s theme and watch a film dedicated to the cosmos and the universe. In the comfort of your suite, you can watch the film “Gravity”, directed by Alfonso Cuarón, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, winner of 7 Oscars. To accompany the film session, you will have our most recent dessert wine, the Late Harvest, of the Petit Maseng grape variety, and homemade popcorn with salted caramel and togarashi

*the wine tasting can be made in the first day and any other day, subject to booking.

  • The day starts with a reenforced breakfast, with cold meats, fruit juices, fresh farm eggs, pastries, cake, and fresh coffee.
  • The morning will be dedicated to outdoor activities, like hunting, fishing, archery and dish shooting. We will test your skill and challenge to reincarnate the God Mars.
  • On the lunch table the spoils of the Mars influenced productive morning: largemouth bass fished on the Terges River, game meats like partridge, quail, hare, rabbit, or thrush. A true feast.
  • The adventure will be motto for an afternoon of quadbike and jeep rides, kart cross or horse racing, culminating with sunset watching in the Alentejo plains.
  • End of year dinner: being Africa the cradle of humanity, its flavours, animal, and culture richness will be the inspiration for the recipes being presented in this dinner, as well as the dress code, that we challenge you to develop using all your imagination.
    The new year will be celebrated with fireworks and other surprises to wrap this challenging year and give rise to a new phase, a rebirth.
  • Wake up to the morning freshness. Feel the first aromas and delight yourself with a breakfast full of fruits, compotes and natural juices.
  • The morning will be dedicated to planting a tree, a cork-oak tree. We reserved an area at Malahdinha so that each one can plant their oak, an autochthonous tree, an oak from which cork can be extracted, so important for the magic of our wine. Each tree planted will have a nameplate with their name so that you can witness their growth at Malhadinha. In Portugal, is in the Águas de Moura locality that the monumental 234 year-old and 16 meters tall cork-oak tree is located, considered a national monumental and the biggest and oldest cork-oak tree in the World.
  • The lunch will be ode to the “Garden Vegetables”, a light and delicate meal paired with our most aromatic wines.
  • During the afternoon we hunt for vegetables. It is time to harvest fruits and vegetables from our organic gardens for a dinner dedicated to the Earth’s produce. Take your favourites to our Chef, and they will be prepared to pair with your favourite dish. To harmonize the flavours, at dinner we invite you to go an trip through the Syrah grape variety, in national and world wines, through analysis of the different expressions of this variety whose main characteristic are the earthly aromas.
  • During the evening we will reflect on this day’s theme EARTH, OUR PLANET. We invite you to watch the David Attenborough film “A Life on our Planet”, winner of two Emmys, where he tells us the history of his life and the evolution of the Planet, the loss of natural habitats and proposes a vision for the future. This session will be accompanied by an infusion of mint from the Terges River.
  • Morning ride on a hot air balloon, the most romantic way to celebrate the planet that we are honouring. Watch from the sky the perfection of Nature in one of the least populated regions in Europe, Alentejo.
  • Breakfast will be served where the balloon lands. Our team will prepare for you a memorable start of day meal, in a surprise local, known only by the Gods.
  • The morning still holds a flower workshop with Ion Rotaru, floral designer that will teach the art of flower arrangements with what Nature offers us. Surprise your love and take from Malhadinha a souvenir with your signature.
  • Lunch will be a romantic picknick among the vineyard, in which our Chef Rodrigo Madeira presents a very natural and aphrodisiac menu to pair with the sensual and exuberant wine of the Portuguese grape varieties Touriga Nacional and Alvarinho.
  • The afternoon is dedicated to the “Winemaker for a Day” workshop, in the Barrel Cellar, where you can learn how to blend wine from various batches maturing in our Barrel Cellar. Learn blending techniques and what makes our wines different from others in the world.
