It is located in the remote northeast of continental Portugal, separated from the coast by a series of mountains where Marão stands out.
This region is characterized by its high altitude and harsh continental climate featuring long, scorching summers and long, cold winters. The soils, mainly granite and schist, are very poor and not highly productive.
Trás-os-Montes is divided into three sub-regions, namely Chaves, Valpaços, and Planalto Mirandês. These sub-regions are situated along the valleys of the rivers that run through them, with the first two sub-regions located at the geographical center of the appellation, while the Planalto Mirandês is on the plateau of the Serra do Mogadouro, southwest of the region.
The primary white grape varieties grown in the region include Códega do Larinho, Fernão Pires, Gouveio, Malvasia Fina, Rabigato, Síria, and Viosinho. As for the red grape varieties, they include Bastardo, Marufo, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, and Trincadeira.
