Ribatejo

Portugal's Ribatejo Wine Region: History, Grapes, & Wineries

Ribatejo is named for the banks of the Tejo (Tagus) River, which divides this wine region from northeast to southwest.  This part of Portugal is known not only for wine but also for Lusitano horses and for Mertolengo cattle, both raised for use in Portuguese-style bullfighting.  Ribatejo is Portugal's second-largest wine region, but the DO as a whole is still struggling to forge an identity.
