Quinta da Raza has a unique terroir created by the gentle slopes and the magnificent exposure to the sun. The soil benefits from its granite origins with areas of schist and clay. This is very unusual in the Vinho Verde Region. The estate has a microclimate created by the mountains in the west and the valley of the Tamega river which, unlike the other rivers of the region, does not run from East to West, but from Northeast to Southwest, which together prevent the influence of the Atlantic winds. Therefore, there is less rain and a greater temperature range at Quinta da Raza than is the case with all the other growers of the area. This means that Raza's vineyard is subject to more sun, which is an important factor for the development of the vines. Moreover, the average altitude of Quinta da Raza is 250 meters, which corresponds to the best average altitude suited for growing grapes. Avesso is a key ingredient in the typical white blend found in Vinho Verde, isolated here to show off its lush texture and stone fruit aromas. Try it with scallops or lobster rolls!
