This red wine is a blend of Aragonez, Touriga Nacional and some Cabernet Sauvignon from the Península de Setúbal wineregion. Just below the Lisbon area. The estate overlooks the tiny village of São Romão.
This region has been inhabited since ancient times as proven by vestiges of coins and wine amphorae. Traversed by the river Sado, its climate manifests itself in hot, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. The temperate Mediterranean weather reflects the region’s proximity to the Atlantic ocean.
Autocarro (Bus) 27. We all have a bus route in our lives. It is part of our memories. The one from José da Mota Capitão was Nr. 27, in Lisbon. Also, in times of crisis, we do not drive the car, we take the bus. Autocarro 27 was created in this conjuncture.
