Nortico Rosé is produced on the south bank of the Minho River in plots so small they are called jardins, or gardens. Soils there are granite and schist, and though it sees a lot of rainfall (up to 2,000mm/80 inches annually) the inland area is warmer than the coast, allowing for perfect ripening and balance in the fruit. Historically, this area was known for red wines, vinhos tintos. These light aromatic reds were locally called Palhete.
