The vineyards are located on the islands of Faial and Pico, in Faial, the vines grow at the foot of the Capelinhos volcano, which erupted sixty years ago. From its ashes rises the Azores Arinto, a rare variety, very diversified in its aroma and complexity, different from the mainland Arintos
On the other, on the island of Pico, old vines thrive among the crevices of the slabs and the basalt corrals, right in the heart of the landscape that deserved the distinction of World Heritage.
