The Vinho Verde Demarcated Region stretches across the northwest of Portugal and is the largest Portuguese demarcated region and one of the largest in Europe in terms of geographical area.
Comprising the municipalities of Amarante and Marco de Canaveses, the Amarante sub-region is located in the interior of the region, protected from the influence of the Atlantic and at a medium-high altitude, so the temperature ranges are higher than the region’s average and the summers are hotter. These conditions favor the development of some later-ripening grape varieties such as Azal and Avesso.
Known as the Princess of Tâmega, Amarante is the guardian of a vast wealth of heritage, traditions and unique nature. Come and discover the sweets, regional cuisine, hiking trails in contact with lush nature, architectural and religious heritage, local celebrations and much more. And all, of course, without forgetting the company of a bottle of Casa de Laraias.
