The vineyards of Ferreira are planted throughout the Douro region, which is divided into three subregions: the Lower Corgo, the Upper Corgo and the Douro Superior. The schist soil found on the steep hills along the Douro River is essential for the character of Port wines. In the 1980?s the vineyards underwent extensive replanting and investment, with Ferreira pioneering the vertical system of planting, where vine rows are aligned uphill rather than along the contours.
Porto Ferreira White has an appealing yellow-straw hue and a fresh but intense aroma, with attractive floral and fruit tones. Soft and very well balanced in the mouth, it is a rich and full wine, with added complexity and nobility deriving from a careful aging in wood.
