They are the most adapted to the geology and climate so specific to the region. The predominant varieties are: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Souzão.
QUINTA DO PESSEGUEIRO

To produce wines of a unique character, we capitalise to the maximum on the magnificent land of the Upper Douro and maintain the plethora of cultivars, some of which are endemic to this valley. To give their exceptional fruit, the vines must plunge their roots as deep as possible through the cracks of the schist and slate in search of the groundwater table, and find one of the most balanced water supplies.
The varied nature of their lands, the climatic nuances, the diversity of attitudes and exposure of plots contribute to the unrivalled complexity of their wines.
Quinta do Pessegueiro comprises three plots: Pessegueiro, Teixeira, Afurada.
