Adega Regional de Colares
Adega Regional de Colares information
Lonely Planet review
En route to Praia Grande and Praia das Maçãs, ridgetop Colares makes a great pit stop with its panoramas, stuck-in-time village charm and wines dating back to the 13th century. The vines grown today are the only ones in Europe to have survived the 19th-century phylloxera plague, saved by their deep roots and sandy soil. Call in advance to arrange a visit to Adega Regional de Colares to taste some of its velvety reds.
