Reds: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Barroca, Tinta Amarela and Sousão.

Whites: Viosinho, Rabigato, Moscatel, Verdelho (Gouveio) and Arinto

The old vines follow the ground lines and are planted in continuous rows distanced 1.2 m, with 1m between each plant.
They consist of a field blend of more than 40 varieties, the predominant ones being Tinta Amarela, Tinta Roriz, Barroca and Touriga Franca.

In 2009 Quinta do Vallado decided to increase its area of vineyards, having chosen the Upper Douro as the most favorable location to do so. Quinta do Orgal, located in Castelo Melhor - Vila Nova de Foz Côa was acquired and since then more than 30 acres of organic vineyards have been planted.
