The king & queen of Alentejo

During the months of April & May you can enjoy a great selection of Iberian Porks & wines from Alentejo.


APRIL & MAY 2024

Specials of the Month - Black Iberian Pork 100% acorn & Alentejo Wines

The black Alentejano pig is exceptional and blessed by nature. It is raised in the oak groves of the Alentejo and fed with acorns. Its meat is more succulent, intense, and tasty, with a unique flavour and delightful tenderness. Heavily marbled, this delicious pork meat looks darker than regular pork, and the acorn diet imparts a nuttiness to the flavour.

Nothing complements a meal with Black Iberian Pork better than an Alentejo Wine. This wine region in the south of Portugal, with summer temperatures above 40ºC, produces great wines. There is a distinction between the white wines, which are aromatic, fresh, and balanced, and the red wines, ruby or garnet-coloured, which are more intense, full-bodied, and at the same time smooth and slightly astringent.

And what about wine?

Jorge has selected a range of Alentejo wines, focusing especially on the reds, to pair with our delicious Black Iberian Pork dishes. Welcome to Alentejo, a land of wines that will surprise you with their excellence, aromas, and colours, as unique as the landscape and the cuisine.

A vast rolling plain in Southern Portugal with cork forests and hilltop castles. Summer temperatures reach 40 degrees, allowing the grapes to easily ripen for full, generous wines.


Home to many large wine estates at the forefront of innovation. Red grapes in particular thrive in Alentejo, varieties such as Aragonês, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet give powerful rich, full bodied smooth wines.

There is a distinction between the white wines, which are aromatic, fresh and balanced, and the red wines, ruby- or garnet-coloured, which are more intense, full-bodied and at the same time smooth and slightly astringent.


Red Wine
