Bucelas

Vineyard in Bucelas, near Lisbon, historical region of white wines, dominated by the Arinto variety.
Bucelas is a small region north of Lisbon, in Loures, which produces one of the most historic white wines of Portugal. It was elevated to a demarcated region in 1911 and is a Controlled Denomination of Origin (DOC).
It was in the eighteenth century that Bucelas wine became internationally known. During the French invasion the Duke of Wellington, commander of the Anglo-Portuguese troops against the Napoleonic armies, offered it to George III in introducing the English court, where its consumption has become a habit. Initially it was known as "Charneco", and later by the name of Lisbon Hock (Lisboa?s white wine).
The vineyards settle in "Caeiras" in the valley of the Trancão river,  in soils derived from  hard calcareous and marl . With a very cold climate in winter and mild in summer, the dominant variety is Arinto, with a minimum  of 75%, followed by Sercial and Rabo de Ovelha. Bucelas  white wines are dry, light,  earn golden shades when aged and complex aromas. Bucelas also produces sparkling wines with fruity aromas, of excellent quality.
