History, Soil and Climate

The winemaking activity is documented in this region since the sec. XIII. Colares is recognized for its exceptional terroir, and for the character and elegance it gives to its wines, having become one of the most remarkable regions in Portugal. The clear predominance of white grape varieties at Quinta Vale da Roca has to do with the edaphoclimatic characteristics of the region, which is conducive to this type of grapes, as the granitic soil of fine clayey-sandy texture, associated with a markedly Mediterranean climate of the subtype Oceanic, with dry and mild summers, winters with medium precipitation, with frequent morning mists and winds with a strong Atlantic influence give the wines of this region a strong character, complexity and a very specific typicity.

the vineyard

For planting the vines, national and foreign grape varieties were chosen, always with the aim of producing wines that express well the “terroir” of Colares on its south-facing slopes, warmer and sunnier, tempered by the North wind, fresh and “salty” of summer days. The varieties planted are the result of research into strains that adapt well to this climate, such as Pinot Noir, Arinto, Encruzado and Malvasia.

The Wines
