TAKING CARE OF VINEYARDS, TAKING CARE OF WINE.
The region’s viticulture has evolved considerably in recent years, providing winegrowers with the best quality grapes, with economically viable and environmentally sustainable productions, which make it possible to obtain wines with a unique quality-price ratio. Viticulture is spread over practically all the Setúbal Peninsula municipalities: with a total area of about 9000 ha, it is in the municipality of Palmela that the largest wine-growing spot in the region can be found, followed by Montijo and Setúbal. There is also an important vineyard area in the southern region of Setúbal District: Alcácer do Sal, Grândola, Santiago do Cacém and Sines. Despite some differences at the orographic level, viticulture in the Setúbal Peninsula is essentially homogeneous in terms of its nature.
