The story 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 made. This wine is Domingos Soares Franco tribute to this fortunate marriage between the variety and the region, brought together by the Founder of this company. The grape varietylão Francês which, originated from Old Vineyards, was footrodden in small “lagares” and the wine was then aged for 14 months in small new French oak barrels.
