José Maria da Fonseca (Setubal)
In search of a great rosé wine that pleases the American palate, Henry Behar travelled through Europe. Finally he found what he was looking for at the winery José Maria da Fonseca in Portugal. The bottle, launched in 1944, was named after Behar's favourite paintings: "Las Lanzas" by Spanish painter, Velázquez. Lancers Rosé is today one of the Portuguese wines most sold around the world.
