The family owned estate of Azamor was purchased by Alison and Joaquim Luiz-Gomes in 1998. Known as the
bread basket of Portugal, the Alentejo has staked a claim as one of the country
s most important red wine regions. It is renowned for its consistency of good quality, excellent value, fruit driven wines. Unlike many producers in the region, Azamors vineyards are planted on low vigour hillside sites, which gives their wines more depth of flavour. Alison uses a mixture of local varieties like Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet, as well as international ones such as Petit Verdot, Syrah and Merlot.
