VINHO VERDE REGION
The wines from Quinta da Raza are produced in Basto, a sub-region located in Vinho Verde, Portugal. Basto has a unique terroir; very high mountainous with river valleys, it is the most inland sub-region, with an average altitude of 250m. The soils are granitic, with sandy loam predominating within them. It also has a large temperature range; the climate is harsher than in the rest of the Vinho Verde region, very cold in winter and very hot and dry in summer.
