The Dão region is unique and has its own characteristics, surrounded by mountains, is settled on granitic soils and extends its vineyards by different altitudes, from 200 meters above sea level at its lowest spots to 1,000 meters in the Serra da Estrela. The mountains determine and shape the climate of the region containing the vineyards of the direct influence of the continental climate and the maritime influence. High altitude makes for cool nights, slower ripening, good acidity and aroma, and the potential for great elegance in the wines, both red and white.
