The DOC Tras-os-Montes encompasses the districts of Bragança and Vila Real, with the exception of two towns that form part of the Douro and Vinhos Verdes. It is the corner at the northwest of Portugal, separated from the coastline by the mountain range of Gerês, Barroso, Cabreira, Alvao and Marao. This is the reason why it means behind the mountains…It is an isolated area quite inaccessible.
In the tras-os-montes region, there are several winegrowing areas which produce white and red wines with differentiated characteristics, a renowned quality and which deserve special mention.
In the Bragança district, it is important to highlight the rosés thanks to its organoleptic characteristics produced in Mogadouro and Miranda do Corvo. Wines from Vimioso are mild, low in alcohol, fresh and tasty. Within the same district, deserve a special mention wines produced in Macedo de Cavaleiros, mainly those from towns such as Arcos, Muzelos and Vilarinho de Agrochao that are quite famous since the Peninsular wars and present a higher degree of alcohol.
