Beiras, once a vinho regional covering most of central Portugal, embracing, from west to east, DOPs bairrada on the Atlantic coast; the rugged, mountainous terrain of dão; and beira interior, and including declassified wine from these areas. It was split into three separate regions in 2009: Beira Atlântico, Terras do Dão, and Terras da Beira.
