Fernao Pires is one of the most planted white grape varieties in Portugal. It is grown in the centre and south areas, especially in Bairrada (where it is known as Maria Gomes), Estremadura, Ribatejo and Setubal.
Fernao Pires is very early-ripening, which makes it one of the first Portuguese grape varieties to be harvested. Besides, as it is very sensitive to frost, it develops better in fertile soils of temperate or hot climate.
This grape variety has good alcohol content and low or medium acidity, which makes the wines produced from or blended with Fernao Pires have intense floral aromas.
