WINES OF TEJO
With a focus on quality and balance, Tejo is experiencing a wine renaissance from vine to bottle. Combining experimentation, investment in modern equipment, and a commitment to lowering yields and the cultivation of terroir-specific grapes, the wines appeal to the modern-day wine lover by offering a balance between rustic, Old World heritage and a fresh, forward-thinking approach.
The wines of the region are some of the most vibrant and affordable coming out of Portugal today and offer a diverse array of styles that appeal to a variety of tastes and budgets. Tejos native red grapes include the bold Touriga Nacional, Portugals most famous variety, as well as Trincadeira and Castelão. The aromatic Fernão Pires and the lively Arinto produce some of the regions most refreshing white wines. These indigenous grapes thrive in Tejos warm climate and complex soils, while retaining their high natural acidity, producing balanced wines with fruity characteristics.
