Bairrada DOC

The Bairrada region unfolds itself through Beira Litoral, between Aveiro and Coimbra, until the coastal dunes. The Bairrada has a mild climate, tempered by proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Although wine production is there since the tenth century, it was in the nineteenth century that it became a region of quality red wines, white and sparkling wines.

This region of flat lands includes two types of soils that originate diverse wines: the clay, clay which originated the name Bairrada, and sandy soils. The Baga variety is the dominant red variety in the region. Grown in clay soils,it produces wines full of color and very rich in tannins, which gives them high longevity. In white grapes, planted in the sandy soils of the region, there are the varieties Bical and Fernão Pires, in the region called Maria Gomes, who originates delicate and aromatic white wines. The region's natural sparkling are widely used at the table, specially with the traditional Leitão da Bairrada (piglet).
