Comissão Vitivinícola Regional Tejo


Tejo River inevitably marks the landscape of this region, located in central Portugal. On the north bank of the river, the land is more irregular than in the south, where the vast plains accompany the course of the river that crosses the country. It is the flatlands in its splendor, land of bulls, horses and herdsmen. In the most severe winters, the river easily transposes its banks and extends to the flat terrains, which makes these soils the most fertile in the entire country. The vineyard here gains its greatest effect. Further north we find Bairro and further to south Campo.


The varieties and the terroir give the wines from Tejo unique properties, whether they are white, red, sparkling or spirit wines. Predominately it is the Campo and Charneca vineyards that give rise to fresh and aromatic white wines, made from grapes like Fernão Pires, Arinto, Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay. The red wines are full-bodied, complex, soft and result primarily from grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira, Castelão and Aragonez, grown mainly in the area of Charneca and Bairro.


Traditions, gastronomy, built heritage and landscapes are a great wealth of this region. Four itineraries allow to get to know this territory better. These are an invitation to explore the farms and wineries, but also intended to lead the visitor to go other wealthy places, as the treasures of Gothic and Manueline (Santarém and Tomar), the beauty of the Floodplain or the tranquility of Beira Tejo.
