It is in the Douro Valley that Tinta Carvalha stands out and where it concentrates its geographical distribution. The historical records point to a Genesis in the Douro region, most likely originated in Sabrosa, where it continues to mark the varieties of vineyards. It is a notorious variety since it produces wine with very light colour that often ends up being relegated to the status of rosé. Fallen out of favour, it is rare today to see Tinta Carvalha being replanted. It is a variety that continues to survive only on the account of the old vines of the region, where, because it is a very productive variety, with an outcome per hectare that even exceeds the impressive bar of twenty tons, it was established as the major variety in many of the Douro old vineyards.
