Winemaking here is part of the cultural code, and the diversity of the soil brings to life an unimaginable number of approaches to the production of wine (usually medium-acid, moderately fruity, and always high-quality). In the red segment of wine, Touriga Nacional is very popular: local winemakers use it in monosort wines and together with other red autochthons – for examples, such as Castelao, Trincadeira, and Aragones. The white wines are dominated by the aromatic, slightly spicy Fernao Pires and Arinto and Alvarinho descended from Vinho Verde.
