The soils in Lisboa region are influenced by their proximity to the coast. The landscape ranges from undulating lush green terrains to steep, poor, and desolate mountain soils of Candeeiros and Montejunto. The best vineyards are planted on kimmeridgian limestone with enough clay to maintain a good enough level of water in the soils.
