Portugal's capital and the hub of a multifaceted region, here you will find cities as diverse as Cascais, Lisbon, Palmela, Sesimbra, Setúbal and Sintra. The passage of time and history has left a legacy of medieval castles, Renaissance palaces, manor houses, churches, chapels, convents and sanctuaries which allow a rendezvous with ancient time. The region has a remarkable extension of natural areas throughout its territory (about 600 ha): parks, nature reserves and protected areas and beaches and seaside resorts which combine 20th century villas and hotels, with marinas and sports facilities, notably golf, water sports and many surfing spots.
With vine culture being brought by the Phoenicians and expanded by religious orders (Benedictines, Cluny and Cistercians), the Lisbon region's winegrowing vocation was soon asserted and today it is synonymous with plurality, reflected in the groups into which its wines are divided, from fortified to still wines. The first vines in the Iberian Peninsula were planted on the Setúbal Peninsula around 2000 BC, starting a tradition that was renewed in 1907, with the demarcation of the Moscatel de Setúbal Region. No other region has so many geographical differences with the existence of plains, mountains and hillsides, as well as the Sado and Tagus rivers and the nearby Atlantic Ocean.
