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. Padernā). 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 varietal Read more »
