WINES FROM Trás-os-Montes

The Trás-os-Montes region is a mountainous area, of high altitude and predominantly with granite soils, with some schist patches. It has a harsh continental climate, very dry and hot in summer in contrast with the long and freezing cold winters.

The old vineyards, existing all over this region, with a great diversity of ancient grape varieties, determine the quality of the wines in the region.

The demarcated region of Trás-os-Montes is divided into three sub-regions: Chaves, Valpaços, and PlanaltoMirandês, stretching along the valleys of rivers that cross them. In the sub-region of Chaves, the vineyards are planted on the hillsides of small valleys, where the tributaries of Tâmega river flow.

The sub-region of Valpaços is rich in water resources and is located in a plateau. In the Mirandês plateau, located in the Mogadouro mountain, it is the Douro river which influences the viticulture.

The planted grape varieties are practically all common in the three sub-regions. Regarding the red grape varieties, there is a special focus on Touriga Nacional, Bastardo, Marufo, TintaRoriz, Touriga Franca and Trincadeira. As for the white, the emphasis goes to Côdega do Larinho, Fernão Pires, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina, Rabigato, Síria and Viosinho.


Particularly in Trás-os-Montes, we can be in contact with rich nature and gastronomy.

Wines from Trás-os-Montes can be paired with Cod with bread crust, alheira de Mirandela a smoked sausage made of meat, bread, and condiments that can be eaten grilled or roasted.
