Azores Region

The vine culture dates back to the same century and later, in the 17th and 18th centuries, the wines produced in Azores, Pico Island in particular, were exported to Russia and most countries in Northern Europe.

Regarding the constitution of the soil and the climate in these islands, the soil is essentially volcanic and has a deep maritime climate in spite of the mild temperatures throughout the year. There is a high level of rain and atmospheric humidity and the sea wind is constant.

The vineyards are planted in particular locations called "Currais" where they are surrounded by volcanic rocks walls that release heat to the vines overnight and have a quite effective protection effect against bad weather. Because of those special conditions, the vineyards have unique characteristics.
