In the vineyards dozens of indigenous grape varieties were planted, according to Organic Production and Integrated Production. The olive, orange, almond and Mediterranean forests help maintain the balance of the ecosystem.

Old vines planted in schistose soils in vertical rows at altitudes between 460 ft and 555 ft, facing south and west. This wine comes from a plot located on the margin (margem) of the Douro River, which characterizes the vineyard’s terroir and produces highly concentrated, ripe grapes.
The vineyards are planted in schistose soils both vertically and on terraces at altitudes between 360 ft and 985 ft. South-facing, there are five water springs (called minas) that help to cool the area and influence the vineyard’s terroir. This is a concentrated wine, with a balance of ripe fruit and the characteristic freshness of Quinta dos Murças.
