Quinta da Raza is located in Celorico de Basto, in Vinho Verde Region (DOC).
The unique terroir is created by the gentle slopes and the magnificent exposure to the sun. The soil benefits from its granite origins with areas of schist and clay. This is very unusual in Vinho Verde Region.
The vineyard has always been the main farming interest due to the importance of the high quality of the grapes produced. These range from Azal, Arinto, Vinhão to Alvarinho, which are unique grape varieties from the Vinho Verde Region.
Since 1987 Diogo Teixeira Coelho has continued the family tradition of Vinho Verde production.
Despite the use of modern technology related to oenology, the traditional wine producing techniques have been maintained. The picking by hand and the treading of the grapes as well as the use of the 100 year old stone tanks is carried out by local people with a heritage of experience. The preservation of the vineyard environment has also been of prime importance.
