Tejo

On the fertile banks of the Tagus River, a fresh and fruity wine is produced


The Tejo wine region is a short drive from Lisbon. Located in the heart of Portugal, this region is immemorially linked to wine production.

Land of bulls and horses, but also of castles, monasteries and churches that tell stories, of cities and towns that were once royal palaces and that define what it is to be Portuguese, Tejo (Tagus) Wine Region is, above all, one of the oldest wine-producing regions.

Discover the Gothic heritage of Santarém or the Manueline church of Golegã, among other monuments, the heritage of the Knights Templar, the enigmatic Almourol Castle, standing guard in the middle of the river, and, in Tomar, the Castle and Convent of Christ, classified as World Heritage, where the secrets of the order and its role in the history of Portugal are revealed.

In the customs and traditions of Tejo region, the equestrian tradition is determinant, highlighting the breeding of the Lusitano horse.

In Salvaterra de Magos discover the art of falconry, one of the oldest relations between man and nature, preserved and celebrated daily and recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.

The Tagus wine region has excellent natural conditions for growing vines and producing wines, allowing the creation of consistent, high quality wines with exciting and different styles, balanced and fresh wines with fruity aromas that can be enjoyed on all occasions. The region is cut in half by a wide and imposing river which, in addition to giving the region its name, has, over millions of years, formed a terroir marked by three distinct zones: field (more fertile soils), quarter (clay-limestone soils) and moorland (sandy and therefore poorer soils).
