The Tagus, the longest river in Portugal, is a constant in the landscape. Along its valley and the hills that surround it, the river has a decisive impact on the climate, soil, and consequently the wines, of the region. The quality of the vineyards, wineries and wines produced in this region, formerly known as Ribatejo, has been improving greatly. The Tagus is now a modern region with enormous potential to offer quality wines, and demand has been growing significantly.
