Situated at the foot of the mountain slopes of Nave, between the rivers Paiva and Tavora, this region presents secular traces of human occupation. In the twelfth century, it was elected by the Cistercian monks to build what has been one of the first monasteries of the order in Iberia. Despite the growing of vines having been started during the Roman occupation, they were responsible for the great development of the culture of the vine. Located towards the North of Beira, it borders the Douro region and is a small, but very relevant area in the production of sparkling wines. The white varieties are predominant: Malvasia Fina, Cerceal, Gouveio or Chardonnay. The red varieties widely planted are Touriga Francesa, Tinta Barroca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Pinot Noir.
