The maritime climate influences the citrus notes and white fruit on the palate. This is a fresh and balanced wine, with a firm body and long finish. Great as an aperitif or with grilled white fish or vegetagble risottos.

Esporão – The Winery

Founded in 1973 by José Roquette and Joaquim Bandeira, Esporão’s mission to make the finest wines from what nature provides.

“Forty nine years ago, Esporão was born from the desire to make the finest wines in the Alentejo region. What seemed like the dream of two friends, has become a project with international and generational perspectives. The motivation behind this family business remains the basis of everything we do, expanded today to new territories and products.” - José Roquette
