The Setúbal Peninsula has special conditions, due to the proximity with the Natural Park of Arrábida and the Sado Estuary Nature Reserve, which provide unique characteristics to the practice of wine tourism.
On this Peninsula is where the demarcated region of Moscatel de Setúbal is located!
This opens the door to the invitation to taste the wines of the region, but not all other wines are left behind, with emphasis on the famous grape variety “Castelão”, known by the world of “Piriquita”.
For all this, and much more to discover in this area, we suggest:
The visit to the wineries and cellars, where you can do a commented wine tasting with regional products.
Do you already know the perfect harmonization between the Moscatel of Setúbal and the “Torta de Azeitão”? And a good “Castelão” with Azeitão cheese?
These tastings can be made in the cellars or you can choose spaces representative of the producers:
– Casa Mãe Rota dos Vinhos, an old restored cellar. It is currently the headquarters of the Wine Route of Setúbal Península and represents more than 20 producers. You will find wines with the same price that the winery, cheese tastings and regional sweets accompanied by commented tastings.
– Casa da Baía, a unique space in the city of Setúbal, where in addition to exhibitions and a tourist information point, it also has regional products, wines, and where it is possible to do a commented tasting. All this personalized and made especially for you!
In addition to these spaces, you can also find wines from the region in the restaurants and shops in the city, always accompanied by typical and conventional cuisine!
The RM team can help you make your itinerary and plan a wine tourism day that you will not forget!
