Beira Interior is located in the interior of Portugal and covers the districts of Guarda and Castelo Branco, which are incorporated the wine zones of Castelo Rodrigo, Pinhel, and Cova da Beira. The region is known for its mountainous landscapes, with granite and schist soils, as well as a continental climate, with harsh winters and hot summers. These climatic conditions, combined with the altitude, which exceeds 1000 meters, provide a special "terroir" that directly influences the quality of the wines produced in the region.
Beira Interior wines are produced from a variety of grape varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Síria, etc. These varieties are grown in old vineyards, some over 100 years old, which gives the wines a unique complexity and intensity of flavor.
In addition, the Beira Interior region has increasingly invested in technology and sustainable practices, thus contributing to the improvement of the quality of the wines produced. The use of precision viticulture techniques and the adoption of organic and biodynamic practices have been increasingly common among producers in the region.
The growing demand for wines from Beira Interior is the result of hard work by producers in the region, who have sought to value the unique characteristics of the local "terroir" and invested in technology and sustainability. Although the region is relatively unknown, its wines have conquered more and more space in the national and international markets.GO BACK
