The Villa Nogueira de Azetao (ah-say-tao) estate, is home of Periquita. It lies just a short distance from Lisbon, across the Tagus River on the Setúbal peninsula. Here, vineyards enjoy the benefits of a sun-drenched maritime climate and a varied soil composition that incorporates elements of sand, clay and lime.
The property remains in the hands of its founder's descendants, Antonio Franco, the 8th generation at the helm of this venerable estate. Tremendous investment in the winery and property speak to their commitment to continuing a long-standing tradition of quality and integrity.
