Colares has been a Controlled Designation of Origin since 1908. This is the westernmost demarcated region of continental Europe and the smallest quiet wine producing region in the country.
With a strong influence of the Atlantic Ocean, by the proximity of the vineyards of "sandy soil" where the varieties Ramisco (red) and Malvasia de Colares (white) are planted, the wines of the Demarcated Region of Colares have unique characteristics.
Here, the famous velvety Colares Wine is produced. Needing at least 18 months to reach its peak for drinking, this wine is a real treasure for its connoisseurs. With a low alcohol content, it can be stored in bottles for many years.
