Setúbal Peninsula

Setúbal Peninsula

This region lies just south of Lisbon. It is famous for the Moscatel wines, with some specific varieties such as Arinto, Moscatel de Setubal and Moscatel Roxo, as well as Castelão in the red varieties among others. Here you can find two of the most emblematic producers in the country, José Maria da Fonseca and Bacalhoa Vinhos. But the region has many other attractions like the picturesque historic center and the port city of Setubal and Sesimbra, the beautiful landscapes of the Serra de Arrabida and the Sado Estuary inhabited by families of dolphins.
