BASTARDINHO DE AZEITÃO 30 YEARS

IGP PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL

A rare wine, unique in aroma and palate, produced thirty years ago from the red grape, Bastardo (Trousseau).

This wine comes from the vineyards south of the Tagus River, which were abandoned by the company in 1983. Since then, Bastardinho has no longer been produced. However, after 30 years, the company is now considering planting the Bastardo variety once more.
