FAMILY OF WINES. WINES OF A FAMILY.
A family business with almost two centuries of history, and one that has known how to stay up-to-date without ever sitting back on its laurels. José Maria da Fonseca has been making wines since 1834, resulting from the shared passion of a family that has known how to preserve and project the memory and the prestige of its founder. Well aware of the responsibility of being the oldest producer of table wine and Setúbal Moscatel in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca follows a philosophy of permanent development, constantly investing in research and production, combining the latest techniques with traditional know-how. An example of this is the José de Sousa Rosado Fernandes Winery, at Reguengos de Monsaraz, Alentejo, where the Roman tradition of clay pot fermentation is maintained alongside the latest technology.
Continuing to invest in benchmark products at international level, always produced to the highest standard, José Maria da Fonseca has contributed decisively to the promotion and prestige of national wines. The nearly 650 hectares of vineyards and a winery equipped with the latest technology, which competes with the best in the world, produce wines that combine the experience gathered throughout its history with the most advanced winemaking techniques.
In addition to all these resources, what most characterizes the work at José Maria da Fonseca is a great passion for the art of winemaking. It is this passion capable of generating emotions that José Maria da Fonseca shares with consumers every time they try one of the company’s wines.
produced in Portugal on the Setúbal
Península, a region south of Lisbon which
was recognised as a D.O.C. in 1907. Some
years ago, Jose Maria da Fonseca decided
to brand its Moscatel as Alambre. Alambre
was the name of the estate where José
Maria da Fonseca first planted vines of the
Moscatel grape variety, and also refers to
wine’s amber colour. Alambre is a
prestigious brand both in Portugal and
abroad. The Setúbal Península has unique
conditions to produce fortified wines from
the Moscatel grape. The climate is
influenced by the Tagus and Sado Rivers
and the Serra da Arrábida hill range. It has
Mediterranean characteristics with hot, dry
days and humid nights at the end of
Summer. Winters are cold but not too rainy.
This wine is a blend of 19 vintages, where
the youngest wine is at least 20 years old
and, the oldest is near 80 years old,
resulting in a fresh, complex and rich wine,
the pride of José Maria da Fonseca.
