Bairrada is rich in the production of white and red wines made up of traditional grape varieties, such as the abundant Baga, and international ones imported to Portuguese soils, such as the Cabernet Sauvignon.

The region is located in Beira Litoral, between Águeda and Coimbra. It is very close to the sea, which is why its climate is typically Atlantic: mild and rainy winters, and summers softened by the effects of the Atlantic winds.

Baga is the main red grape variety of the region and is usually planted in clayey soils. Wines made from this grape variety are full of colour and very acidic, but also well balanced and of great longevity. Recently, it has been permitted to plant international grape varieties in the DOC region of Bairrada. Some of these are the Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir, which are grown together with national grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional or Tinta Roriz.

White grape varieties are planted in the region’s sandy soils. The most planted grape variety is Fernão Pires (known in Bairrada as Maria Gomes). The Arinto, Rabo de Ovelha, Cercial and Chardonnay grapes are also planted, though in lesser quantities. These wines are delicate and aromatic. The region’s sparkling wines are often used to accompany local food or as appetisers.
