This is one of the biggest wine producers in Portugal, with head quarters on the Setúbal peninsula south of Lisbon. On the edge of the small town Azeitão they have a big winery. In addition to the wine production facility they have one of Portugal’s finest collection of azulejos (ceramic tiles) dating back to the 16th century.
Bacalhôa is well known for its excellent Moscatel de Setúbal, a sweet wine made from the very aromatic muscat grape. It is concentrated with hints of orange marmalade, dried fruit and nuts with an excellent balance between the sweetness and the acidity. But they also make very good reds, for example Meia Pipa and the cabernet sauvignon-based Quinta da Bacalhôa. Their white Loridos made from alvarinho grapes is very nice with citrus character and good minerality.
