The vines planted at an average altitude of 750 meters above sea level, in the middle of the Iberian plateau, are protected by the Marofa and Castelo Rodrigo mountains and surrounded by the Douro, Coa and Águeda rivers. Due to the altitude, the thermic amplitudes are high (hot days and cool nights) which origin fresh and mineral wines, with good ageing potential.
"Our wines are the result of a perfect combination between the Terroir and the best our people have to offer."
