Periquita Reserva represents a blend between the true and original Periquita tradition and a vision for the future.

The wine produced at Cova da Periquita immediately proved to be the best in the region, sparking other owners to ask José da Maria da Fonseca for a cutting of this variety to plant on their own properties. In this way, the wine bacame known in Azeitão as Periquita wine, and began to be marketed by José Maria da Fonseca as Periquita

José Maria da Fonseca registered the Periquita trademark in 1941. Periquita is now the oldest brand of Portuguese table wines, having acquired widespread popularity in Portugal over the years and considerable brand awareness in export markets such as Sweden, Brazil, the UK, the USA, Canada, Denmark and Norway.

The Periquita Reserva represents the true Periquita tradition as well as a vision for the future. The Castelão, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Francesa indigenous grape varieties provide Periquita Reserva with a character, a sweet aroma and complexity.
