Primum Red Wine 1996
A family business with almost two centuries of history that, without ever resting on the conquered glories, has been able to modernize itself. José Maria da Fonseca has been in the wine business since 1834, the fruit of the shared passion of a family that has been able to preserve and project the memory and prestige of its founder. Aware of the responsibility to be, at present, the oldest producer of table wine and Moscatel of Setúbal in Portugal, José Maria da Fonseca obeys a philosophy of permanent development, which leads her to invest more and more in support of research and of production, combining the most modern techniques with traditional knowledge. Continuing to invest in internationally renowned products, always guided by quality, José Maria da Fonseca has contributed decisively to the promotion and prestige of national wines. From the almost 650 hectares of vineyards, and a winery equipped with the latest technology that rivals the best in the world, wines result that combine the experience accumulated throughout its history with the most advanced winemaking techniques. In addition to all these resources used in the production of its wines, what most characterizes the work at José Maria da Fonseca is an enormous passion for the art of making wine.
