Chão Rijo

SpecificationsSoil Types

Traditional Portuguese varieties. “Chão Rijo” literally means “Hard Soil”. It´s the local expression to identify the argilo-calcareous soils of the region. Located at less than 10 km (6,2 miles)from the Atlantic Coast at an average altitude of 110 m (360 feet). Due to the closeness of the sea, the climate is very specific, with a muscular Atlantic influence, i.e. moderate temperatures, constant winds and a high percentage of air moisture. Mists are common till mid-morning due to the presence of the Sintra Mountain, to the South.

SpecificationsWinemaking
