  • About

Duriense, vinho regional whose boundaries correspond to the douro region, but producers may use a much wider range of grape varieties. As a result, a handful of credible examples of Pinot Noir, Syrah, Alvarinho, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Chardonnay bear witness to the Duriense’s great diversity of terroir. See douro for more details.
