It is produced in the Região Demarcada dos Vinhos Verdes, in the northwest of Portugal, an area traditionally known as Entre-Douro-e-Minho. Its boundaries lie to the north of Minho River - natural frontier with Galiza-, the east and south mountainous areas that constitute the natural separation between Entre-Douro-e-Minho Atlantic and the more interior zones of the country with more Mediterranean characteristics, and lastly the Atlantic Ocean which constitutes its western limit.
Cultural issues, categories of wine, microclimates and vineyards led to the division of Região Demarcada dos Vinhos Verdes into nine sub-regions: Amarante, Ave, Baião, Basto, Cávado, Lima, Monção and Melgaço, Braga, Paiva and Sousa.
Since the technology involved in its elaboration is extremely simple, Vinho Verde can be considered a direct product and without technological devices. It was never more certain that "wine is whatever the vine that produces it", resulting in wines unique in the world. Vinho Verde is a fruity wine, natural, fresh and easy to drink. a great aperitif or an excellent choice in harmony with light and balanced meals: salads, fish, seafood, white meats, tapas and other oriental and international dishes. Quinta D'Amares produces two varieties of products classified as Vinho Verde DOP ( Protected Designation of Origin) and Vinho Regional Minho IG.
