Winemaking here goes back to the 18th century, with the contrast between the “enforcado” ( vines going up trees ) and “ramada” (trellis) systems for the red grapes and the modern single wire system, still used till this day, for the white grapes.

The main noble grape varieties used for the white wines are the Alvarinho, Arinto, Azal and Loureiro. For red and rosé wines the grape varieties are the Vinhao, the most important red grape variety of the Vinho Verde Region, the Rabo de Ovelha and Touriga Nacional.
