Do you already know the wine region of Bairrada where the delicious Montarro Frisante Branco is produced? Bairrada is located in the south of Porto and is surrounded by hills and coast and lush vegetation. Due to the short distance to the Atlantic (30 km), the wines produced here are fresh, lively and fruity.
The Montarro Frisante Branco is a perfect summer wine that can be enjoyed during the warm season.
