SWEET WHITE WINE
V.R. PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL

Quinta de Camarate is a single vineyard wine produced on one of the family estates in the Setúbal Peninsula.

Located in Azeitão, near Setúbal, Quinta de Camarate was acquired by António Soares Franco Jr. in 1914 and is now the property of the brothers António and Domingos Soares Franco, the prime owners of José Maria da Fonseca. Quinta de Camarate has an area of 120 hectares, 39 of which are covered with vines. The remainder of the land are grazed by sheep which produce the famous Azeitão cheese. The vines of Quinta de Camarate are planted on lime and clay soil sheltered by the Arrábida hills.
