Alfrocheiro grape variety first emerged in Portugal and in the Dão region after the phylloxera epidemic, and finds its natural territory in this region. We do not know of any foreign or national origins of this grape variety, but it was once known as the “Tinta Francesa de Viseu” (= French red grape variety from Viseu). It is a very rare, high-altitude grape variety, that teaches us to produce small amounts and respect its fragility, in order to obtain firm, delicate and structuring tannins.
