Backcountry Tours

Backcountry Tours presents a unique style of guided tours, we created the possibility of having an access to a non-tourist world that often goes unnoticed by most visitors to Évora and Alentejo.

Come visit a region with a rural and familiar environment, which offers unique opportunities for contact with nature, agriculture and local traditions, where its inhabitants deeply know the land, live off it, for it and with it.

Enjoy a world with a cultural heritage built over centuries, which crosses generations and has survived the passage of time. We organize private and personalized tours.



The properties of Monte da Ribeira and Herdadinha belong to the Leal da Costa family, the first record found in the name of Maria Luisa Godinho N.1807, grandmother of the 1st Conde D'Ervideira who started the production of Ervideira wines in 1880, in turn great-grandfather of current producers.

Count D'Ervideira, named José Perdigão Rosado de Carvalho, received the title of King Carlos I, in recognition of his social work in the region, which in addition to being a great farmer that generated hundreds of jobs, was also a politician , philanthropist, mayor of Évora, founder of Casa Pia and high member of Santa Casa da Misericórdia, among other positions.

Today the company has 160 hectares of vineyards spread over the two properties, dedicated to the production and sale of unique wines, making Ervideira an “Embassy” of great wines around the world.
