Vineyard

Raza Vineyard has a microclimate provided by mountains in the west and the river valley Tamega that, unlike the other rivers of the region does not run from east to west, but from northeast to southwest, which together prevent the influence of the Atlantic winds. Therefore, the weather is less rainy and has greater temperature ranges, this means that our vineyard is subject to more sun than perhaps other vineyards in the Vinho Verde Region, important factors for the development of the vine. Moreover, the average altitude of the Quinta da Raza is 250 meters, which corresponds to the average altitude necessary for the best development of vines.

About Quinta da Raza

Quinta da Raza has a unique terroir created by the gentle slopes and the magnificent exposure to the sun. The soil benefits from its granite origins with areas of schist and clay. This is very unusual in Vinho Verde Region.
