The Asnella vineyard, for which the wine is named, is located in the southern part of the Vinho Verde DOC in the subregion of Basto, where it straddles a fault line separating two distinct soil types – schist and granite.

In addition to the delicious, lightly effervescent aperitif-style wines that are most frequently exported from this part of Northern Portugual, there is a whole category of terroir-driven, artisan wines that has heretofore gone unnoticed.
