The wines created by the producer Colinas do Douro are unique and result from the union of three characteristics: Altitude, North Exhibition and Geological Transition.

Located in the sub-region of the Upper Douro, this is a audacious project that extends over 476 hectares, 106 of which are vineyards, on hills and terraces located in the transition from Beira Alta granites to the schist folds of the Douro, at 640 metres of altitude.

This producer, focused on the creation of high quality grapes and wines, started in 2010 and 2011 the planting of the vineyards, opting for the integrated production method and favoring the main native varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, in red; Rabigato and Viosinho, in white. There are also five hectares of old vines, about 40 years old. A remarkable investment that also included the construction of a winery, by architects Souto de Moura and Ricardo Rosa Santos.

Currently there are eight references of Colinas do Douro, among whites, reds, rosé and late harvest
