Terroir


In terms of terroir - that sense of place whose sum of geographical, geological, climatic and human characteristics define the quality of grapes and wine produced there, Quinta de Covela has undoubtedly been favoured by nature.

The estate's location, on the right bank of the Douro; its topographical form - that of an amphitheatre facing south; its micro climate, almost mediterranean in its feel; its poor, granite soils that oblige the vine roots to burrow deep into the earth to find water and minerals; all these elements result in unique wines both in terms of their high quality and their distinctive style. Since the 1980s Covela wines, all assemblages of portuguese and international grape varieties, have been synonymous with innovation, quality and individuality.
