In a region of strong and ancient wine tradition, six courses enable the discovery of Costa Azul heritage and landscape. Through them, one gets to know the major wineries in the Setúbal Peninsula. Famous for producing the generous Moscatel, this region also stands out for producing high quality wines, where the predominant grape red variety Castelão, has been popularized as "Periquita", as this is the name of the oldest Portuguese table wine. To better take advantage of the proposed routes, it is recommended to visit the Casa Mãe da Rota dos Vinhos, Mother House of the Wine Route, in Palmela. Inaugurated in 2000, it is located in an old winery and it surprises with the beauty of its interiors. Here you can find and taste many wines and quality local products, gather information about the tours or reserve a place in guided tours through the ten wineries that make up the route. These are the Adega Cooperativa de Palmela, a Bacalhôa - Vinhos de Portugal, the Casa Agrícola Horácio Simões, the Casa Ermelinda Freitas, the Cooperativa Agrícola Santo Isidro de Pegões, the Herdade da Comporta, the José Maria da Fonseca, the Quinta de Alcube, Sivipa and Venâncio da Costa Lima. All these houses are also part of the six proposed routes. The first gos through "Lands of Santiago", from the Castle of Palmela up to the Chapel of S. Gonçalo, a route rich in history, heritage and crafts. The second route takes us "Through Arrábida Lands", where nature and art are matched with wines from houses as representative as Bacalhôa Vinhos de Portugal or Jose Maria da Fonseca. In the thrid route, "Through Green Laands", between Palmela and Fernando Po, can be found the golf courses in the region and some of its best wineries. "Through Lands of Settlers, Railwaymen and Ancient Devotions", the fourth route, takes the visitor through a path of churches, chapels and shrines to Pegões, a land of renowned wines. Also there is the fifth course, devoted to nature and particularly to the salt evaporation ponds. Finally, the sun and sea come together in the sixth route, "Through lands of the Dolphin Bay", which leaves Setubal towards Comporta, through Tróia, and concludes this last leg of the Wine Route of Setúbal Peninsula / Costa Azul.
