Adega de Palmela

Península de Setúbal

When you drive from Lisbon to the agricultural region of Alentejo you can look to your right and see the wonderful hilltop castle of Palmela in Setúbal. Here Adega Cooperativa da Região do Moscatel de Setúbal was founded in 1955.

The Adega Cooperativa de Palmela is one of the main centres of development in the municipality that is markedly agricultural and where the vineyard and the wine have, for historical reasons, a very large importance. The main wine-growing area lies on the sandy plain that makes up a large part of the Municipality of Palmela.
