Alambre is a DOC fortified wine, produced by José Maria da Fonseca for over one hundred years.
Some years ago, Jose Maria da Fonseca decided to brand its Moscatel as Alambre. Alambre was the name of the estate where José Maria da Fonseca first planted vines of the Moscatel grape variety and also refers to the wine’s amber color. Alambre is a prestigious brand both in Portugal and abroad.
