Winery Stories:

Over 60 years old vineyards of the 'Castelão' variety in Fernando Pó, Palmela.

A deep, concentrated aroma. The Castelão grape variety at its best, with notes of dark fruit, jam and spice. Complex on the palate, with slight nuances of tobacco and chocolate from the 18 months spent in French oak barrels. A full-bodied wine, with noticeable tannins and an elegant finish.

HISTORY The central motif of the coat of arms belonging to Fernando Pó, the Portuguese navigator of the 15th century, is the figure of a lion preparing to attack. With Leo d'Honor, we celebrate the Lion of Honour that represents Fernando Pó wines, possibly the most singular wine-growing region in Portugal.
