Estremadura, formerly known as “Oeste,” is a Vinho Regional within Portugal that encompasses several smaller regions. Its close proximity to the north of Lisbon makes it an ideal tourist destination, with a landscape dotted with Medieval Castles along the wine route. Considering its relatively small size, it’s a diverse region with lush greenery in spots and steep, rugged slopes farther into the Candeeiros and Montejunto ranges. 
 
Carcavelos: In the 18th century, the Marquis de Pombal is credited with making a name for the region (he established the Companhia das Vinhas do Alto Douro, or Port Wine Company) with his “vinho generoso” produced here. The estate is now Quinto do Gradil. 
 
Bucelas: known for cultivation of the Arinto varietal (a.k.a. Padernã). These white wines have a reputation for grace and ageworthiness, grown in marl and limestone (caeiras) soils. 
 
Colares: known for growing the rare red Ramisco Read more »

  • Montaria Luis Vieira 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Another recent Naked Wines selection. If I recall the other vintages of this, this vintage is not quite as good as the other vintages which I liked. This one seemed a bit too young and too one dimensional. Loads of sweetish fruit - concord grape, blueberry, and boysenberry and allspice but not much mineral or earth. Only bought one bottle of thi... Read More

  • Quinta de San Francisco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Don't let the price in euros fool you... this is not an 8 dollar wine. Following a stroll along the ramparts of Obidos Castle in Portugal (one of my decadent excursions to Europe), I chose this local wine of modest pretenses as an evening tipple. Opaque and full of coffee and cherry on the nose, this rich, smooth wine just hints of Ginja - the ... Read More

  • Quinta de Pancas Lisboa 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A blend of Arinto, Viral, and Chardonnay Lightly aromatic with hints of candied citrus and jellied red currant on the nose along over hints of mango fruit. Smooth and easy going in the mouth, this offers a rather lush mouthfeel underpinned with fine acidity. Hints of figs emerge early on the palate followed by apple toned fruit that it round and...
