Located in the Sub-Region of Vale do Ave, heart of the Vinho Verde, between the cities of Oporto and Braga. Within an area of approximately 17 hectares, the vineyard has excellent features for producing high quality Vinho Verde. Exposed to the Atlantic Ocean influence, being this even more reinforced by the main river valleys orientation, that facilitates the maritime winds’ penetration.
The Demarcated Region of Vinho Verde is located in the northwest of Portugal in an area traditionally known as Entre-Douro-e-Minho. Its limits are the Minho River in the North (border with Galicia), the mountainous areas in the East and South, forming the natural border between the Atlantic Entre-Douro-e-Minho and the Mediterranean inland regions, and the Atlantic Ocean as its western limit. The vineyards are located in loam soils, of mild texture and well drained, offering excellent sun exposure, granting its grapes a golden color, easily reaching full maturation, hence its wines are among the best of the entire region.
