During the Muslim occupation of the Algarve, the vineyard was cultivated in large quantities and its production outcome was exchanged for other products. After the reconquest, the Christians took advantage of this economic organization and after the second half of the nineteeth century, with the development of viticulture in the region, Algarve wines have begun to enjoy the prominent place due to its distinctive character and quality. The region of Lagoa is located in a strip of territory stretching between the ocean and the mountains of Monchique and Caldeirão. It includes the municipalities of Albufeira, Lagoa and part of the counties of Loulé and Silves. The climate is extremely dry and typically Mediterranean. The traditional varieties of the region are Castelão and Negra Mole (in red varieties) and Arinto and Syria (in white varieties).
