Start your Adventure
On this tour, you will visit two wineries fully equipped with the most up-to-date technology, traditional cement deposits and a wide variety of wines, including sparkling wine, late harvests and Muscats.
The Castelão grape, which is present in most of the Palmela and Setúbal wines, and you will have the chance to taste, finds its perfect conditions on the dry, sandy soils, which is one of the few terroirs in Portugal where it can reach full ripeness. This variety must make up 67 percent of the Palmela wines.
For lunch, you will taste the best Portuguese grilled fish and in the afternoon you will visit one of the oldest wineries of Portugal, known for their Periquita and Muscat wines.
In between the visit to the wineries, you may have the time to drive along the dramatic, pine-brushed coastline of Parque Natural da Arrábida with its fine-grained beaches and crystal-clear blue waters, and enjoy one of the most beautiful corners of Portugal!
