This peninsula region that up until 2009 was known as Terras do Sado and is now formally Peninsula de Setubal, is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and the rivers Tejo and Sado. The Arrabida mountain range serves as protection against the effects of the Atlantic, with vineyards planted on the slopes of the mountains. 
The area is divided into two DOC subregions:
Palmela: This is mostly a red wine-producing part of the region and wines are often found with the label “Vinho Regional de Terras do Sado.” Castelao (locally known as Perequita) is the main grape used. It is vinified as a single varietal as well as blended with Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Arragonez and international varietals such as Syrah, Cabernet and Merlot. Whites grown are Muscat, Arinto and Fernao Pires as well as international varietals Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Rosado and sparkling styles are also produced.
Setubal: This DOC area is known for producing the region&rsquo Read more »

    Gift from Jessica 11/15. Yabadabadoo. Thank you daughter-in-law. Portuguese reds are the bargain of the century. Okay, early into it, but I will not be here for much of it so I am casting my vote now. Wow, what nose, mouth feel, flavor and long dry finish. All this for free. Consumed on an otherwise miserable early April 2016 weekend in MI. Go a... Read More

  • Jose Maria da Fonseca Periquita 2013

  • Periquita Reserva 2009


    Imported by: Palm Bay Imports Fl40% Castelao, 32% Touriga Nacional, 28% Touriga Franca Pencil shavings and dried green herbs pop on the nose followed by astringent red fruits and rusty aromas. On entry this is almost sweet for a second, rich with ripe fruit but the vibrant acidity quickly washes that away and offers a great contrast to the ripe... Read More
