José Maria da Fonseca WineryJosé Maria da Fonseca is the oldest table wine company in Portugal. Founded in 1834, it is now in its 7th generation and sells its wines in all continents. Among its best known wine brands are Periquita and Lancers. The winery is in the charming village of Vila Nogueira de Azeitão.
|Jose Maria da Fonseca Manor House: Built in the nineteenth century, the house was restored in 1923 by the Swiss architect, Ernesto Korrodi, and was the Soares Franco family residence until 1974.|
|A must-see is the Setúbal Moscatel cellar, in which wines as old as the company itself slumber in the hallowed and tranquil vault. These Setúbal Moscatels belong to the private collection of the Soares Franco family.|
