Quinta Da Pedra Alta

(Douro, Portugal)

The Douro Wine Region is the oldest wine region in the world, and is located in the northeast of Portugal, divided into three major areas: the lower corgo, the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. This quaint and mountainous region has very particular climatic and geological conditions, and is characterized by the large temperature ranges. The formation of microclimates and the abundance of shale in the soil, helps compensate for wide variations in temperature, acquiring very different attributes that reflect the quality of the vineyards. Integrated farming techniques applied.
