Winemaking:
Periquita is renowned for being the first ever, in Portugal, bottled red wine. That’s where its originality comes from. And existing since 1850 we’ve been around to celebrate the Portuguese way of life: laid-back, relaxed, warm, fruity and with a spicy nose. That’s what Portugal is all about and that we want you to enjoy. The history of Periquita is interwoven with the story of José Maria da Fonseca itself, beginning in the 1820s when the founding father of the company, José Maria da Fonseca arrived in Lisbon and bought several local properties. One such purchase, most probably in 1846, was Cova da Periquita. It was on that property that José Maria da Fonseca planted red grapes of the grape varietylão variety, which he brought most probably from the province of Ribatejo. Although we are not sure when the first vintage was produced we are certain that by 1850 Periquita was already being made. Periquita is now the oldest brand of Portuguese table wines having acquired down the years a widespread popularity in Portugal and considerable brand awareness in sophisticated export markets such as Sweden, Brazil, the UK, the USA, Canada, Denmark and Norway. VINIFICATION Fermentation lasts for about 4 days at 28ºC with full skin contact. Ageing 6 months in French oak (new and used)

FIRST LOVE

We where introduced to Periquita way back in the early nineties by Aurelio (R.I.P.) the owner of the Atlantico resturuant in Guia near Albufiera . He recommended the wine when having dinner for a family birthday and it is one of those wines which we first look for when dining out in the Algarve. Always the same lovely taste and sometimes you even get a wee bonus when it turns out to be a vintage year for the grapes. Try it you will not be disappointed.
