Wines Alfrocheiro

The Alfrocheiro Grape

Alfrocheiro is a red-wine grape variety hailing from the mountainous Dão in central Portugal. It is an early ripening variety thriving in the dry, warm climate, which offsets the vine’s leaning to disease in more humid areas. It is quite a popular plant further south as it retains good acidity even in hot climates. Often used in blends for the deep colour it brings to the mix, Alfrocheiro also has blackberry and strawberry aromas, with a good balance of tannins, alcohol and acidity. In the Dao, it can be found as a varietal wine.
