Q.S.S. Rare is a label of Quinta De S. Sebastião, a winery in the village of Arruda dos Vinhos, a sub-region of Portugal’s Lisbon main region. It was established in 1755, the same year an earthquake devastated the area. The tradition of winemaking in Arruda dos Vinhos goes back more than 1,000 years. Today, Quinta De S. Sebastião is owned and operated by Antonio Parente.
The award-winning Q.S.S. Rare line of wine was created for two reasons: to offer vibrant and modern wines produced from an ancient terroir and to support the cause of saving endangered wildlife. A percentage of each sale goes to support organizations such as The League for the Protection of Nature to prevent the extinction of species crucial to the environment from tigers to seahorses.
