Bairrada

PositiveWine’s Cellars are located in Bairrada between Serra do Buçaco and the beaches of fine sand of the Atlantic coastline.
Bairrada has a mild maritime climate with abundant rainfall due to the proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.

In the region, there are two main types of soils which produce different wines, the loamy-calcareous, whose clay (in Portuguese “barro”) originated the name Bairrada and the soils of a sandy basis in the zones of the coastline.

The variety Baga is the traditional type of red wine in the region. Cultivated in the loamy-calcareous soils, it produces fruity red fruits and wines full of colour and very rich in tannins, which grant them great longevity. For the sparkling wines, it produces the ‘blancs de noirs' with the “Baga@Bairrada” designation with regional certification.

For the white varieties, abundantly planted in the more sandy soils, the main varieties are Aristo, Bical and Maria-Gomes which produce delicate white wines with an elegant aroma and sparkling wines of high acidity with freshness and a long finish.
