The Monção and Melgaço region, at the northernmost point of Portugal, is one of the nine sub-regions of Vinho Verde DOC. It has a very distinct microclimate, spread around the hillsides on the south bank of the Minho river. This Vinho Verde subregion is where the Alvarinho varietal has its origin and where it started its evolution.
