Description: The microclimate that influences the production of Alvarinho grapes is very particular. Melgaço region, the northern point of Portugal, is protected by a range of mountains that create the perfect conditions of rainfall, temperature and number of hours of sunshine needed to the better ripeness of the Alvarinho grapes. The brand name – Soalheiro - arises from the excellent sun exposure of the vineyards bearing the same name - a sunny place.
The grapes are produced with the concept of organic viticulture and harvested by hand from old vines with more than 40 years at Quinta de Soalheiro, the First Vines “Primeiras Vinhas”. Currently, the blend also includes a selection of Alvarinho grapes planted in Pé-franco.
