Flat and coastal areas, influenced by the Atlantic, with abundant rain and medium temperatures, in this case unlike other regions, never reaching extremes of heat and cold.
It was also the region that started the exploration of sparkling wines, perhaps when they didn’t have great influence internationally and nationally.
What also distinguishes it from other regions is the difference of terrains in the same area, which brings varied styles according to the different elements that prevail before others.
Its cool and humid climate favors the production of grapes of high acidity with low alcoholic value.
We see therefore due to the diverse and distinct factors described above, wines considered to have a more classic style and also new wines, distinguished by the multiple national and international grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, merlot, Pinot Noir, and Syrah.
Here the white grape variety Fernão Pires predominates.
It is perhaps the zone with the most variety and at the same time the highest quality as far as national and international wine zones are concerned.
