Tejo, formerly known as Ribatejo, is a landlocked area of Portugal located between Lisboa and Alentejo. The river Tagus (the region’s namesake) ensures Tejo is more temperate than other parts of Portugal although there are climatic variations across its 6 DOC (Denominacao de Origem Controlada) sub-regions.
Almeirim, Cartaxo, Chamusca, Coruche, Santarem and Tomar are Tejo’s DOC areas. Between them they produce red, white and rosdao (rosé) wines and are permitted to grow a good variety of grapes including the red Castelão, Trincadeira, Aragonez, Touriga Nacional, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and the white Fernao Pires, Arinto, Vital, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
