Beiras

To the south of both Minho and Trás-os-Montes lies the region of Beiras, stretching the full width of Portugal. Beiras is home to the more well-known DOCs of Bairrada and Dão, along with the less well-known DOCs of Távora-Varosa in the north, butting up to the Douro region, Lafões in the north west, meeting the southernmost part of the Minho region, and the large DOC Beira Interior in the north east and the south east of Beiras. Bairrada lies to the west of the region, though it doesn’t reach the coast, while Dão occupies the central part of the region.
