Production

The Gouveio, Viosinho and Arinto grapes, indigenous to the north of Portugal, grow in fine soils with some schist. The vineyards are situated near Cambres, in the western part of the Douro valley, south of the river. Some of the vines are over 50 years old, and they enjoy a warm and dry climate. After harvesting the grapes are fermented in stainless steel at controlled temperatures.
