Falua, Sociedade de Vinhos
Tejo (formerly Ribatejo)
The Falua society is a progressive and forward thinking wine making company owned by Joao Portugal Ramos. Located about 40 miles north of Lisbon on the banks of the river Tagus in the town of Almeirim, the company now has over 100 hectares of vines under their own control, from planting, through to pruning, picking, fermenting and bottling.
The Tejo region ( formerly known as Ribatejo) is realising its potential for producing good, honest, easy drinking wine, with character and flavour, as well as finer wines in smaller parcels.
Falua has taken grip of the situation and stands virtually alone in the Tejo in developing the massive potential of the region in a dynamic, market driven way. These are wines of terrific value, ideally suited to British Market tastes. A brand new winery, recently constructed, stands testament to their commitment in the region.
