Situated northwest of the country and sharing border with Galicia, Spain, this is one of the biggest DOC of the country. The region, as the name may give away, is extremely green and and its climate is cool and wet which makes the ripening of the grapes extremely hard but with the right techniques on the vineyards, the grapes keep their high acidity that is so characteristic of the region. There’s usually a river nearby each vineyard which in junction with the fertile granite soils, produce some outstanding wines.
The region is divided into a further nine regions to the DOC and the most common and popular grapes here are the renown Alvarinho, Trajadura, Loureiro, Arinto (Pedernã) and Avesso.
One of the characteristics of this wine is its lower alcohol (usually around the 11.5%), light-bodied and at times with a slight spritz to it.
