How to serve
Aliança was founded in 1927 under Domingos Silva and Ângelo Neves' leadership. The winery is located in Sangalhos, Anadia county, in the Bairrada region (between Coimbra and Porto). Characteristic of the region is the Atlantic ocean proximity and the ensuing maritime winds blowing the on the flatland and the regular rainfall. This does not prevent the local cellars to elaborate great wines in Portugal's most prominent wine region.More about the Winery
