Carcavelos DOC is the smallest wine region of Portugal and is situated around the town of Carcavelos, in the municipalities of Cascais and Oeiras. The region is classified DOC, Denomination of Controlled Origin. With a winemaking tradition that dates back to the Marquis of Pombal, who then owned vineyards, the region is distinguished by generous wine, topaz with almond flavors and aromas, acquiring a scent accented with aging.
Situated very close to the mouth of the Tejo River, the vineyard area of the region is very small, since the region has been heavily urbanized. The climate is Mediterranean, temperate and no major temperature variations due to the proximity of the sea. The qualities of the fortified wine of Carcavelos were officially recognized in 1907 and a year later set out the general principles of their production and marketing. Protected by the Marquis of Pombal, who produced in his Quinta de Oeiras, this generous wine currently has a very limited production
