Region Hierarchy
  • Beiras wine region

    Beiras (Beira) is a traditional administrative region in the northern half of Portugal.

It was traditionally a single region, but was later split into Beira Litoral (coastal Beira) and Beira Interior (inland Beira), which gave its name to the eponymous DOC.
