After the period of settlement of the Azores islands, the region of Biscoitos (Cookies) had the most extensive vineyards of the Terceira Island, which produced fine wines and spirits greatly appreciated. This designation is due to the fact that the soil is very rocky and dark in color, similar to the cookies that the seafarers of the Discoveries Period used as bread. The geographical area of this region covers only the parish of Biscoitos, in altitudes not exceeding 100 meters, where the climate is temperate and moisty with a dry, long and mild summer. In the volcanic lands where vineyards are grown, the lava rocks have to be removed until the soil is found beneath them, being then used to delimit the plots, called "curraletas". Verdelho, Arinto and Terrantez are the varieties planted and used to produce fortified wine.
