Códega do Larinho
Protected by the UNESCO
This autochthonous white grape variety originates in Portugal, its sole growing area. It is primarily cultivated in the Douro region in the north of the country, one of the oldest wine regions protected by UNESCO. It is cultivated across an area of over 600 hectares. The vines grow mostly on steep terraces, carved into the bare slate ground. The productive vines produce rather low-acidity white wines with aromas of tropical fruits. The grapes are usually blended with other varieties.
