Bucelas

The unique style of Arinto Bucelas win has been recognized for centuries. It is thought that the Phoenicians and the Romans already cultivated the Arinto. Known by Shakespeare as the “charneco”, became famous at the English court, by the hand of General Wellington known there as Lisbon hock. It is produced in the Bucelas demarcated region, created in 1911, within a specific microclimate and an exceptional “terroir”.

This region is located 25 kilometers north from Lisbon, in the Valley of Trancão River. The vineyards settled down in soils corresponding to the traditional “caeiras”, predominantly derived from marls and hard limestones.

The weather – cold in winter and temperate in summer – has however large temperature fluctuations at this time.

The variety that gives the distinctive organoleptic characteristics to this famous white QWPDR (Quality Wine Produced in a Demarcated Region) is the Arinto.
