LOCATION AND SUBREGIONS
The region comprises the municipalities of Setúbal and Palmela.
The Setúbal DOC covers most of the peninsula, including the municipalities of Sesimbra, Palmela, Montijo and part of Alcochete and the council of Setúbal.
The Palmela DOC has the same surface as Setúbal, it is the union of the areas of Serra de Arrábida and Palmela, so there are two different terroirs.
The vineyards are located in two absolutely different orographic areas: a mountainous area to the south and southwest and a flat one. The mountainous region is more rugged in the Arrábida, Rasca and S. Luis mountain ranges and less rugged on the northern slopes of the Palmela, S. Francisco and Azeitao mountains, cut by several valleys and hills of varying heights between 100 and 500 metres.
