A region where wine production is centuries old and the typical rural landscapes are gifted with enormous beauty. Lisbon vineyards are planted in gentle slopes with altitudes between 100 and 220 meters benefiting from an excellent sun exposition and a climate slightly tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean. This is one of the richest wine regions due to the diversity of grape varieties, type of soils and climate. The fresh summer nights and gentle winters are a key factor for the production of quality grapes. The maritime influence contributes to the production of wines with a nice acidity, a very typical characteristic from this region.
Its principal red grapes are Baga, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional and white grapes include Antão Vaz, Arinto, Chardonnay, Fernão Pires and Rabo de Ovelha.
