The soils in Bairrada are quite varied. This region in northwestern Portugal, lies between Aveiro and Coimbra, which means winds and rains that can cause grapes to rot or destroy harvest entirely. Here vines thrive on calcareous clay and on sandy soils. One can also found schists or loamy soils in the northeast and east. The Portuguese word "barro," which means "clay," appears to be the basis for the region's name.
