The red and white wines are made from the native varieties Arinto, Camarate, Fernão Pires, Jampal, Mortágua (Trincadeira Preta), Periquita (Castelão Francês), Preto Martinho, Tinta Miúda (Graciano) and Vital. The most famous wineries are Quinta de Abrigada, Quinta de Plátanos and Quinta do Carneiro.
