The Azores Grater
It was in the late fifteenth century that the vineyards from the islands of Graciosa and Terceira began to grow in the black volcanic soils with great capacity to absorb heat, in the form of "curraletas"(small stone enclosures).
The increasing quality / prestige of these wines meant that in 1994 the two areas were declared as suitable areas for producing the Quality Wines «Biscoitos» and «Graciosa».
In the past, with his hard work, man built on the basaltic soils the typical "curraletas"(small stone enclosures)that constitute a unique feature of the vineyard landscape of the Azores. This peculiarity prompted its classification as a demarcated area and distinguished Azores destination.
