Soil Zafirah seeks to trace back the ancient traditions of the red wines produced in the Monção region. These wines are already described in the charter attributed by D. Afonso III to the village of Monção (1286). Several historical records mention that Monção red wine was sent to England during the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries, serving as a substitute for the famous Burgundy wines.
