A time honored wine producing region, the culture of the vine is mentioned since the founding of the nation, despite the fact that its greatest expansion dates from early twentieth century. In a geographical area consisting of 5,000 ha in the counties of Bombarral, Cadaval, Caldas da Rainha and Óbidos, the prevailing varieties are Vital and Trincadeiro (the local name for Castelão), producing an average of 350,000 hl of wine. However, the production with a geographical status is reduced to an area of 178 ha. The climate is temperate Mediterranean and the vineyards are located on hillsides with little slope, at an altitude of one hundred meters, where soils are rich in clay and brown and red limestone. The combination of these factors results in wines of recognized quality, among which are the wines of Gaeiras and the "Ginja", which liquor of cherry was made famous as the most typical and traditional beverage in Obidos.
