for this region?

 

This up and coming region is situated in central Portugal. It became a DOC in 1999 and was then divided into three subregions:
 
*Castelo Rodrigo
*Cova de Beira (home of the exclusive local white grape Fonte Cal)
*Pinhel
 
The climate is continental, with hot and dry summers and very cold winters. These conditions can be tricky, creating grapes with higher alcohol to tannin ratios, but with skill, great wines can still be produced. 
 
Whites produced in the region are Arinto, Rabo de Ovelha, Malvasia Fina and Siria. Reds grapes are Tinto Roriz, Touriga Nacional, Rufete, Bastardo and Marufo. The area is known for older vines, with small yields, but fine structure.
