The Grapes

Grapes Touriga NacionalTouriga Nacional

As Portugal’s most well-known grape variety, it has made a nice home for itself in the Tejo region.

Producing wines with high tannins, full body and flavors like dark berries, plums and purple flowers, the grape thrives in southern Portugal’s warm climate.

Grapes CastelaoCastelao

This grape is found predominately in southern Portugal, but also prospers in the poor, sandy-clay soils found throughout the Tejo region.

The grape has the ability to produce well-structured wines with vibrant acidity and an endearing rustic quality with notes of plum, red currants and meaty aromas.

Grapes Cabernet SauvignonCabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is probably the most famous red wine grape variety on Earth. It is rivaled in this regard only by its Bordeaux stablemate Merlot, and its opposite number in Burgundy, Pinot Noir. From its origins in Bordeaux, Cabernet has successfully spread to almost every winegrowing country in the world.

It has found a special niche and style in the Tejo Region, one of the few Portuguese winegrowing regions where it can ripen to perfection.

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those varieties that can be termed "enriching"; deeply colored and thick-skinned, it can spice up blends, imbuing body and consistency to well-composed, perfumed, fruity and spicy wines.

It is rarely bottled as a varietal wine in the Tejo, but is present in small amounts to give structure in many wines.

Appreciated for its versatility, resistance and correctness it yields wines of immense longevity that age with elegance and security.

Wines from the Tejo region

TemplarsFamily-owned estate winery with 30 hectares. Dedicated to producing wines of exemplary quality, enhanced by a regional character.

Our story starts with a passion for wine and the Templars history when, back in 1989, we discover old vineyards left to natural succession near Tomar, a city located in the center of Portugal and founded by the Knights Templar. Nourished by a sunny, warm and dry climate, relative cool nights, with limestone-clay and schistose soils, this fertile agriculture region has excellent natural conditions for grape growing.

Inspired by the multi-centenary Templar’s art of winemaking in this region, we embraced our new ambition by building a state-of-the-art winery and gradually restructured the vineyards to achieve a balance of young/old vines, all under the supervision of an experienced technical team.

Reaching top 3 in one of the largest international wine competition strengthened our focus on making world-class wines at affordable prices. Our dedication to quality is consistently recognized by several Gold and Silver medals in rigorous wine competitions and 85+ ratings (Very Good) in renowned international publications.
