Colares DOC

Definition

Wine

  • a tiny DOC wine-growing area northwest of Lisbon, Portugal, producing chiefly red wines. Its vines are planted on sand dunes on clifftops. Because of the sandy soils, the vines have never been attacked by phylloxera and grow on their own roots. As they must be planted deep in the clay below the sand, replanting involves a great effort that is decreasingly made.
