The region is limited to the north by the River Minho, to the east and south by mountainous areas which naturally delimit the Entre-Douro-e-Minho and to the west by the Atlantic Ocean. The vineyards take up an area of 21 thousand hectares, accounting for 25% of the national winemaking area. The characteristics of the soil, climate, factors of a cultural nature and the influence of the seaboard are some of the main variables which afford originality to "vinho verde", unique worldwide.
