Fernão Pires

Fernão Pires is an old autochthonous white grape variety in Portugal, most widespread in the regions of Bairrada (called Maria Gomes there), Tejo and Lisboa. Fernão Pires is a common Portuguese family name. This grape is probably dedicated to a personality who was important at the time but is unknown today. The variety was involved in crossings and new varieties such as Alvarinho Silvestre and Campanario. Medium-sized, conical and broad-shouldered grapes, whose berries have a muscat note, produce fragrant, floral and fruity wines. It is versatile in winemaking, contributing mainly acidity and alcohol in cuvées.
