Browse by Region in Portugal - Lisboa
Lisboa, until 2009 named Estremadura, is a Portuguese wine region covering the same areas as the Estremadura region, and taking its name from the country's capital. The region is classified as a Vinho Regional (VR), a designation similar to a French vin de pays region. While the Beiras and Alentejo VRs are largest geographically, the Lisboa region is Portugal's largest producer of wine by volume. The region stretches from Lisbon along the Atlantic coast to the Bairrada DOC.
In early 2009, the region was renamed from Estremadura to Lisboa to avoid confusion with the Spanish wine region Extremadura and to capitalize on the internationally well-known name of the country's capital.
Casal Figueira ANTONIO 2015
Portugal :: Lisboa
Sweetness: 2 - Dry
Ready to drink
From the 2012 vintage, Marta is making one white wine (Antonio), where there were previously two (Antonio and Vinhas Velhas).
So now, all at least old Vital vines, but some that are truly ancient, form this single cuvée. An immensely stylish (but not stylised) coiled spring. Terrific with simple seafood, from Sea Bass to Mussels.
