About João Tavares de Pina Rufia! Branco

There, in Quinta da Boavista specifically, at an altitude of 500 metres, the grapes that will give life to João Tavares de Pina Rufia! Branco. There are 13 hectares in total, located between the Serra do Caramulo and Serra da Estrela, which is under the influence of an oceanic climate, with cold wet winters and mild, dry summers.
