The Picnic Baskets by Rosa Estates: The Farmhouse & Stables are a hymn to Alentejo cuisine. And a unique excuse to lay the towel on good socializing in unique places in the Alentejo. From the simplest to the most elaborate, the baskets can be set up in any “corner” of the 87 hectares of the estate in an untouched landscape. Among cork oaks, in the shade of the holm oak, by the pool or with a view from the terrace, every place is a pretext for this outdoor catering project.

To complement the list of gastronomic experiences that mark the stay at Rosa Estates and to celebrate the International Picnic Day, this year there are two novelties:

Estrela Basket …, Estrela knows. A long-time cook and expert hostess, Estrela is part of the staff at Rosa Estates: The Farmhouse & Stables. And this basket is a tribute to all Alentejo employees who know so well how to welcome guests who come here from different parts of the world. Born in Alentejo, Estrela likes to work with products in her own way, without ever escaping the Alentejo style. It is a local gastronomic experience, the Estrela Basket.

Lusitano Basket – Escape the city for an adventure in the Alentejo plateaus and admire the untouched landscape on horseback. Follow a trail and stop along the way to enjoy a picnic under cork oaks and holm oaks, including delicious Alentejo dishes and regional specialties such as Pombo Torcaz Tostado or Pheasant Tostado. The tours can be adapted for all levels, from beginners to more experienced riders.

Other options are Azinheira Basket, where there is Alentejo bread, chaparral sheep’s cheese, salt chorizo and black pork garlic. At Sobreiro Basket there is also duck pie. The Alentejo Basket also includes Painho Salt and black pork garlic, and the wine is Terras de Monforte. At Bolota Basket, vegetarian options include hamburgers and, among others, Alentejo migas.

At Rosa Estates: The Farmhouse & Stables, the 6 Picnic baskets celebrate the best in Alentejo cuisine and nature. Lay out the towel. Rosa Estates prepares the entire picnic for you. An ideal suggestion for two, for the family, and to share with friends.
