Made from native Lisboan varietals grown on the vineyard’s 50-acre south facing, sustainably farmed hills. Carefully harvested to preserve freshness, this wine is an easy drinking and well balanced Portuguese blend. Bright fresh fruit is balanced with ample acidity, that is smooth and dry on the palate.
Since 1937, the Ramilo family has been producing wine in one of the most privileged locations in the Lisboa wine-making region surrounding Portugal’s capital. This long, thin strip of vineyards runs along the breezy and maritime Atlantic coast, creating a series of unique micro-climates. Ramilo itself is located in the Lizandro River valley, a hilly region with weather characterized by wet and cool nights, stiff Atlantic breezes and warm, sunny afternoons. This diurnal temperature variation and the rocky soils of the region enable slow, even ripening and balanced grapes that are perfect for the production of high quality wines, primarily based on indigenous varietals.
