Colares is a wine region on the verge of extinction. Since its heyday 100 years ago when it covered 1,000 hectares, it has shrunk to a mere twenty - squeezed between the Atlantic and and the urban sprawl of Lisbon. The vineyards are unique. Their beach-like sandy soils enabled them to escape Phylloxera, and as a result the vines (Ramisco - a local variety) are some of the world's oldest and are ungrafted.

Adega Regional de Colares is the co-operative winery. Housed in a magnificent 19th century cathedral-like building, it now controls most of the remaining vineyards. Their red is an unashamedly traditional wine - tannic, high in acidity and designed to age gracefully over many years (some locals think it peaks at 60). It is an authentic, classic and now endangered wine. Try it while you still can.

Uniquely beach-like, sandy soils right on the Atlantic coast. Very old, ungrafted vines trained along the ground and protected from the wind by bamboo shields and apple trees. Aged three years in exotic wood then one year in two year old French oak.
