The Eternal Winebook

This is my personal version of an eternal Book of Portuguese Wines. The book is eternal in the way that it never stays the same. Now and then new pages are added, or the old pages are rewritten, updated or corrected.

Manzwine

Dansk English Photo: Steen Olsen © 2017

The small town of Mafra with the huge palace, Palácio Nacional de Mafra, is situated about 30-40 km northwest of Lisbon. It is Portugals largest castle, a fascinating building, which was built in 1700 by King João the fifth as a monastery in gratitude because the king after a long period had a daughter and a son.

If you drive directly west from Mafra you get to the fishing village of Ericeira. The area is part of the Lisboa wine region and on the way, you pass through the village Cheleiros, which is surrounded by vineyards. One of the vineyards belongs to André Manz, a former Brazilian football player, who in 2004 bought some vineyards in the village. The fields were planted with the black Castelão grape, but at one of the fields – by the river Lisandro – 200 vines with green grapes of an unknown variety was found. It turned out to be the long lost Jambal-grape, which André Manz decided to use in the production of wine for his own consumption. Initially there were only produced about 180 liters of wine, but soon he found out that the grape had economic potential, and he began selling the Jampal wine. Today, the wine is called Dona Fatima (like his mother-in-law), and the success of the wine has been the basis for the small winery Manzwine.

You can visit Manzwine, their fields and the small museum, which is housed in the village’s former school, where the companys wine is also produced. Today the Manzwine company produces a total of eight wines from the Lisboa, Douro and Palmela regions, and one which is a blend of wines from all three regions.

The Manzwine products are imported into Denmark by House of Wine, but are only sold to companies and restaurants – not to private individuals.
