The Dão region is rich in evidences that once witnessed the production of wines since the times of Roman rule, transforming it into a real open air museum. With the Christian reconquest, the monks, who were devoted to farming practices, spread the culture of the vine, and as from the fifteenth century, the wines of Dão have stated their quality. Located in Beira Alta, geographical conditions potentiate the wines in this region, since the mountains of Caramulo, Montemuro, Buçaco and Estrela protect the vines from the influence of winds. The weather is quite rainy in winter and snow may occur in the highlands, while summer is hot and dry. There are also several microclimates, depending on altitude and inclination, that have a deep influence on the variety of grapes of Dão. The vines are constituted by a wide variety of kinds, including Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Jaen and Tinta Roriz (in red varieties) and Encruzado, Bical, Cercial, Malvasia Fina and Verdelho (in white varieties).
