Castelao is one of the grape varieties most cultivated in the south of Portugal, particularly in the area of Palmela.
It has had many names throughout times: Joao de Santarem, Castelao Frances and the popularly spread Periquita.
Castelao develops best in hot climates and sandy and dry soils.
Wines produced by this grape variety are concentrated, aromatic (raspberry and gooseberry) and have good ageing potential.
The Palmela region produces the best wines from this grape variety.
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most international of all French grape varieties, being widely grown across all five continents.
It has found a special niche and style in the Palmela region, one of the few Portuguese winegrowing regions where it can ripen to perfection.
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those varieties that can be termed "enriching"; deeply colored and thick-skinned, it can spice up blends, imbuing body and consistency to well-composed, perfumed, fruity and spicy wines.
It is rarely bottled as a varietal wine in the Palmela region, but is present in small amounts to give structure in many wines.
Appreciated for its versatility, resistance and correctness it yields wines of immense longevity that age with elegance and security.
