In Fernando Pó, wine is part of daily life.
Traditionally sold at the winery door, families from all over the country, who sought the best wines to be supplied for the whole year. They would come to the weekend, share stories and snacks. And they became friends.
It is this genuineness that Adega Fernão Pó makes a point of maintaining.
WINE AS IT IS
Fernão Pó is a family winery of Fernando Pó, resulting from the joining of two families related to winemaking for generations, Freitas & Palhoça.
Since its founding by Aníbal da Silva Freitas in the 50´s, the winery has grown attached to the local winemaking tradition. At that time wine was part of every day life, inseparable from food, sold at the cellar door. Visitors arrived on weekends to stock up for the whole year, shared stories and became friends.
It is this legacy that the family maintains.
Fernando Pó plains are famous for the high quality of the grapes that grow here. It stands out by the soft sandy layer covering clayey subsoil.
Its microclimate, seasoned by the Tagus and Sado rivers, protects and facilitates the perfect ripening of the grapes.
This results in wines known for good stucture, body, color and, especially, the aromas.
We have been choosing grape varieties through trial, in search of genuine profiled, complex gourmet wines. In teh 150 acres of the family vineyards stand out 84 acres of Castelão, the flagship grape of the region. But also spicy Cabernet Sauvignon, which ripens perfectly here. Also Syrah, Touriga Nacional, Merlot, Tannat, Alicante Bouchet, Aragonez (Tempranillo) and Caladoc.
White grape varieties include local Fernão Pires, Syria, Verdelho, Viosinho and Muscat.
