RED WINE
V.R. PENÍNSULA DE SETÚBAL

In 1998, José Maria da Fonseca produced the first vintage of FSF wine. This confirms the true tribute to Fernando Soares Franco, father of Antonio and Domingos Soares Franco, the owners of José Maria da Fonseca. Produced from the grape varieties of Syrah, Trincadeira and Tannat, the favourite red grape varieties of Fernando Soares Franco, FSF is a super premium wine with a very modern style.
