Our 4th day of touring the wineries of Portugal continued with our group of about 30. The tour was sponsored by Washington State University which used the culinary expert tours of e-Spain. We visited Casa Santos Lima which has 400 hectares of vineyards onsite and off site. They are the largest producer of Vinho Regional Lisboa and DOC Alenquer. They are exporting 90 percent of their production.
Following the visit to Casa Santos LIma, we arrived qt Quinta de Monte d’Oiro where in addition to a winery tour we enjoyed lunch.
Our next visit of the day was to Quinta da Folgorosa which was established in the early 1700s.
Our final visit for the day was to Quinta de São Domingos (Fonte das Moças) which is celebrating its 100th year. The region is on the UNESCO website.
