Rota de Vinhos da Península de Setúbal (Costa Azul)
Admire the blue hues of the ocean and the river Sado, combined with the green color of the mountains. The Costa Azul routes correspond to the wine region of Península de Setúbal, (the Setúbal peninsula).
Here the vines are mainly produced in the interior of the region, where the Moscatel grape, essential for the production of fortified wine, is grown. These wines are widely exported to other countries. The ‘quintas’ where the wines are vinified are usually large in scope and the cultivated grape variety is mostly the Castelão, better known as the “Periquita. In Palmela, and Vila Nogueira de Azeitão, the capitals of this route, you will find wineries and wine farms that you can visit. The muscat wine Moscatel de Setúbal, one of the most famous wines from Portugal, also derives from this region.

Rota dos Vinhos do Alentejo
The vast plains of the interior of the Alentejo, with wheat or with only some cork oaks and olive trees, gives you the illusion of an even vaster landscape and an even bluer sky. On this warm and rugged land some of the best Portuguese wines are produced. Many people inhabited this area, there are traces of prehistoric, Roman and Moorish occupations in almost every town or city: dolmens, Roman temples, castles, churches, and even Renaissance palaces. Besides plains, there are also the Marão and São Mamede mountain ranges, and the River Guadiana, where the yellowish plains transform into beautiful orchards. Borba, Redondo, Reguengos and Vidigueira are names of villages with a long tradition in wines.
