Bairrada DOC

Definition

Wine

  • a DOC wine-producing region in northern Portugal that produces mainly red wine from the Baga grape variety. The wines have high levels of tannin and acid due to the traditional process of leaving the wine in contact with the skins and stalks during fermentation, but recently producers have been seeking ways to make softer wines. Some sparkling white wine without DOC status is also made in Bairrada.
