QUINTA DE CAMARATE 2016

ROSE WINE
V.R. PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL

Located in Azeitão, close to Setubal, 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 is grazed by sheep, which produce the famous Azeitão cheese. The vines of Quinta de Camarate are planted in lime and clay soil, sheltered by the Arrábida hills.

The Quinta de Camarate label was first launched in 1967, replacing Palmela Clarete. When the vineyard was replanted in 1994, in addition to the ampelographic collection that was also replanted, Touriga Nacional, Castelão, Aragonês and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were introduced.
