Domain and appellation
Red and whites, Ports come in different ranges depending on the nature of their blend and age.
- Terroir: Spread across 40000 hectares, the vineyards lay on both banks of the Douro river which crosses the country east to west up to the city of Porto. Located on hillsides , the vineyards lay on granitic soils.
- Viticulture: The main grape varieties are the Malvasia Fina, the Viosinho, the Donzelinho and the Gouveio.
- Vinification: An adjunction of brandy aims at stopping the natural fermentation and preserving the sugars. Ruby ports are often made of a young ports’ blend. They age for 2 to 3 years in barrels.
