About the producer: Century old Fiuza produces food friendly wines, complex and made from indigenous Portuguese and international varieties. Our vision is to create wines that embody the essence of Tejo Region but also appeal to modern wine lovers.
Pioneer in studying international varieties in Portuguese soil, the company developed a range of mono-varietal wines. Nowadays, these varieties are also blended with the best native grape varieties, creating truly unique wines.
Fiuza produces its wines with grapes from their own estates, grown in clayey and clayey-limestone types of soil, and harvested manually and mechanically, ensuring high quality wines.
Fiuza’s winery is a typical Tejo winery from the middle of the 20th century that has been modernized. In 2015, the winery was subjected to an artistic intervention that aimed to make the winery more charming and suited to visits from the public. During one year, streetart artists were invited to restyle the winery. Two Portuguese, Francisco Camilo and Ivo Santos (Smile) brought their inspiration and skills to create a unique environment in an operating winery.
