Acidic soils, poor and fine textured. Mediterranean climate with influence from the São Mamede mountain range originating great temperature variations, which potentiates acidity concentration and long maturations. Most of the vines benefit from southern exposure, and growing on granitic slopes the plants are forced to compete with each other, creating a unique balance. The grapes are delicate with great complexity and good minerality. Productions are small, varying between three and four tons per hectare.
