The Tejo, the largest river in Portugal, has always been associated with theproduction of quality wines. The city of Lisbon was traditionally its biggest marketand until the middle of the 20th century the river also functioned as the main route to bring the wines produced in these lands to the capital. The region is divided into three large terroirs: the so-called “neighborhood”, on the right bankof the Tejo, extending to the north, with clay and limestone soils; the “heath”, onthe left bank, walking south to Alentejo, and where sandy soils dominate; and the“field” or wetland, constituted by low and fertile alluvial lands, next to both banksof the river. Parras Wines has winemaking and storage facilities in the town of Gouxa, Almeirim - the heart of the Tejo.
The Ribatejo area is par excellence the birthplace of the Lusitano horse, a brave companion of man since the times of the Roman empire. Distinguished by its elegance, agility and intelligence, the Lusitano horse is recognized worldwide asone of the noblest breeds for equestrian art. There is also no lack of race for the wines produced in the Tejo, next to the lands where these horses gallop freely.And it is this race, nobility and genuineness that we seek to transmit with thewhites and reds of the Cavalo Negro brand.
