Genuinely precious, this generous wine is ideal as a smooth after-meal drink. If you have the chance to try a glass of rare Carcavelos wine, don’t refuse.

There are years when it is impossible to make, due to the time it requires for obligatory staging in barrels and bottles to acquire its special characteristics.

Its fragrance grows with ageing, but it is an exceptional fortified wine for enjoying after a meal. Made with Trincadeira, Galego-Dourado, Espadeiro and Negra Mole grapes, the art of producing it has been known since the times when the Marquis of Pombal himself used to make it.

Visit Confraria in Oeiras where the wine is sold and succumb to its charms.
