Origin of Arinto

The exact origin of the Arinto wine grape is not known like most of the other wines, but Arinto has been cultivated in the Bucelas region since the roman times.

The style of cultivation has changed over the years, but still people have lands which are only devoted in growing Arinto grape.

Bucelas had huge vineyards earlier, but as the city of Lisbon grew and started to advance, it took a large part of Arinto vineyard.

But this area was under some company who was making false wine which made Bucelas the only sole seller of quality Arinto white wines.

Since then, white wine in this area always has the taste of Arinto wine grape in it. It has now spread to the areas of Spain where it is gaining popularity due to its acidic and fruit fusion.

Every year, thousands of bottles of wine are sold in Portugal which has Arinto grape as their main ingredient.
