The Tejo, the longest river in Portugal, is a constant in the landscape. Along its valley and in the hills that surround it, the river has a definite influence on the climate, the soils and, consequently, the wines of the region.
This region, formerly called Ribatejo, has been showing quite positive qualitative changes in terms of the vineyards, wineries and wines produced here. The Tagus is now a modern region, with a huge potential to offer quality wines, whose demand has been growing significantly.
