Jose Maria Da Fonseca Albis

Jose Maria Da Fonseca, Regional Península de Setúbal

HISTORY
With the purchase of Algeruz vineyards in the Palmela region in 1989, the conditions to develop the production of white wines were created. We planted white varieties in that property in order to produce white wines that would be better suited to modern consumer trends.  Albis was first produced in the harvest of 1991 from the grapes Moscatel de Setúbal and Arinto. To produce dry table whites from Moscatel, the grapes are harvested in mid September before they lose the aromatic and natural acidic features required for this type of wine.  
WINEMAKER
Domingos Soares Franco, Winemaker and Vice President, studied viticulture and oenology in Davis, California. After graduation he joined the company in the 1980s and, being one of the most innovative of the new generation of Portuguese winemakers, brought significant changes to the style of his wines.
COMPANY’S HISTORY

The Soares Franco family owns José Maria da Fonseca and has been involved in the wine business for over 176 years. With over 650 hectares of land under vine in our main wine regions: Douro, Alentejo and Terras do Sado, José Maria Fonseca also boasts Portugal’s largest winery, with capacity to produce 6.5 million litres of wine in a totally computerised operation.
