The vines are grown in the sub-region of Baixo Corgo (Valdigem), distributed by 3 parcels with total area of 6 ha on terraces along the hillside supported by walls of stone, with western exposure. The soils are stony and mostly schist, with a parcel of land in transition to granite.
The red grapes predominate harmoniously in schist, varieties such as; Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca, Trincadeira e Touriga Nacional with other more rare varieties such as Malvasia Preta, Tinta da Barca, Rufete. The white grapes are generally found in the transition parcel, including Viosinho, Gouveio, Fernão Pires, Síria, among others.
The age of the vines is high - between 30 and 80 years! - with high density planting and balanced unit production, which ranges from 0,5 to 1 kg of grapes per grapevine.
It's in the vine that everything begins, hence the importance in producing grapes with high quality potential, capable of expressing fully the varietal characteristics enhanced by the "terroir" where they are!
