The Pegões region is unique in climate and soil conditions.The climate is Mediterranean and the soil, named “Pliocenico de Pegões”, is sandy formed over millions of years by sand transported by the rivers Tagus and Sado. It is this climate / soil combination that gives birth to the unique Pegões wines.
This red wine is grown and harvested in the Pegoes region, a jurassic seabed that makes up the sun-baked plains east of Lisbon.
