This is one of the world’s oldest wines. Made using Arinto grapes, it has a unique fragrance that is similar to German Riesling and is perfect chilled on a hot afternoon.
One of the most famous and internationally recognised wines from the Lisbon region is Bucelas, a light and fruity white wine made using Arinto grapes.
The greatest figures from Portuguese and international literature referred to this small-scale wine enthusiastically. Eça de Queirós, William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Lord Byron were firm fans.
It is said that the vines in the Bucelas region have existed since the Roman era and the 2, 200 years of experience in winemaking has produced something unique which, whether contested or not, ought to be drunk well chilled, preferably after a visit to the Museu do Vinho e da Vinha de Bucelas (Bucelas Wine and Vine Museum).
