Portugal: Our journey through its vineyards and cellars (part 2 - Tejo)


Located between the Lisboa and Alentejo VRs, the region is dominated by the influence of the Tagus river. The river moderates the region's climate, making it more temperate than other areas of Portugal. Vineyards are planted on the fertile alluvial plains along the river and can be prone to producing excessive yields.It is the most central of the traditional provinces of Portugal, with no coastline or border with Spain. The region is crossed by the Tagus River (Ribatejo = "Shores of Tagus") and is home to some of the richest agricultural lands in the country. It is particularly notables for raising the horses and bulls used in the Portuguese style of bullfighting.
These pictures were taken by Arnaldo and I during our journey through the vineyards and cellars of France, Spain and Portugal during the summer of 2009.


I hope you enjoy them.

Cheers,
LA
