Tinta Roriz occupies 20 % of Quinta de Lemos wine‐ stock selection. It is a variety that confers the wine with a high aging potential. The vineyards are located at an altitude between 350‐ 400 meters. The vine is grown within a program of integrated protection. Infestation control is carried out through soil movement. Grape‐ picking is done by hand, caste by caste, when the ideal point of ripeness is reached, normally between the second fortnight of September and the first fortnight of October. The harvest is collected in small 10kg boxes.
