Despite continuing to occupy a prominent area in Alentejo, the Moreto variety is in clear decline, residing in the regions of Reguengos, Redondo and, above all, Granja-Amareleja, the area where the variety is most evident, gaining a prominence unknown in the rest of the country.

It is a vigorous and productive caste that adapts easily to high temperatures and strong sunshine, characteristics that shed light on its propagation in the Alentejo. It has small bunches and medium-sized, round berries, offering low sugar content, low potential degree, vague aromatic expression and little ageing capacity. The wines produced with the Moreto grape variety are, as a rule, reserved for blends with the Trincadeira, Aragonez and Tinta Caiada grape varieties.
