The history of Palmela is deeply connected to its importance as a wine region, a secular role that would have been boosted by the different peoples who occupied the Iberian Peninsula. This tradition is confirmed in Palmela first charter, granted in 1185 by D. Afonso Henriques, where the vine and wine of the region are referred to. More recently, important entities marked the agricultural economy of vineyards in the county, such as José Maria dos Santos, known for commanding the planting, in the nineteenth century, of what was then the largest continuous vineyard in the world. The enduring fame of this region until the present day is due to the range of existing varieties, the most common being the traditional Periquita. The geographic area includes the municipalities of Montijo, Palmela, Setubal and part of the municipality of Sesimbra. The climate is sub-tropical and Mediterranean, with medium temperature ranges and is influenced by the nearby sea and the basins of the Tagus and Sado rivers.
