Description

Casa Agrícola Venâncio da Costa Lima was created by Venâncio da Costa in the town of Quinta do Anjo in 1914. At first his business was focused on the sale of olive oil, grain, and wine. It was only later when Venâncio turned his attention to exclusively producing wine. By the 1930’s, his winery was the second most productive in the region. When he died childless, the business went to his six nieces and nephews. Passed down through the generations, the winery is today managed by the Vida family.

The Venâncio da Costa Lima Palmela DO is made from 100% Castelão grapes harvested from vines planted to clay-limestone soils. Traditionally vinified, the wine was aged for 6 months in French oak barrels. Given the accessible price, this Castelão offers incredibly good value. Bright garnet in colour, it has a complex nose of ripe blackberries, black cherry compote, plums, and baking spice. Medium bodied with lean tannins, the finish is fruity, well-balanced and dry.
