The combination of a schist soil, a very low rainfall and a large thermic range, provides the most intense, rich and concentrated wines.The predominant red grape varieties present in the vineyards are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Barroca. The white varieties are Malvazia Fina, Gouveio, Rabigato, Viosinho and C dega do Larinho.
