Wines on Arrábida National Park

With coves of golden sand and bright blue water hidden among pine-covered hills and vineyards, Arrábida Natural Park is a hidden gem for nature lovers. On the Arrábida exotic woods are hilly pastures, for the sheep that produce the stunning Azeitão cheeses, and vineyards producing structured wines, with fruity flavours, made from Castelão grape and the very famous Moscatel Wine. All together, Arrábida is a balsam for your eyes.

You will get to see and feel:

You will start your fantastic day with a visit to the oldest and most famous wineries in Setúbal, where we will taste the star red grape, Castelão, which dominates the fine red wines of Palmela, feeling far more at home here than in the rest of Portugal. Not enough? You will also taste the vibrant and fresh whites of the region and last but not least, the Moscatel varieties (white and purple) for a glorious end of your day in the Setúbal Wine Region.

Lunch on one of the best Portuguese regions to taste the fresh fish and seafood dishes escorted by the delicious cheeses and conventual pastries of the region: the Cheese and Tortas de Azeitão.

You will taste premium wines on one of the most traditional family-owned wineries in the region and try new projects, done with native grapes and using methods ranging from foot-stomping the grapes, alcoholic fermentation in cement deposits, and aging on eucalyptus and chestnut barrels.

The afternoon will proceed with the visit to the Arrábida National Park,  located on the northern shore of the Sado River estuary, 20 minutes away from the main wineries of the region. The Park’s fine white sandy beaches alternate with the white of the chalk cliffs and the various tones of blue and green of the Atlantic clear waters, contrast with the deep greens of the hills to create a beautiful scenario that is perfect for contemplative relaxation.

Indulge yourself in this ocean of light and crystalline waters in the company of the wines of the region.
