Periquita is renowned for being Portugal's first ever bottled red. That’s where its originality comes from. And in existence since 1850, we’ve been around to celebrate the Portuguese way of life: laid-back, relaxed, warm, fruity and with a spicy nose. That’s what Portugal is all about and that we want you to enjoy.

One such purchase, most probably in 1846, was Cova da Periquita. It was on that property that José Maria da Fonseca planted red grapes of the Castelão variety, which he brought most probably from the province of Ribatejo. Although we are not sure when the first vintage was produced, we are certain that by 1850 Periquita was already being made.
