Douro Wine Region
The Douro Wine Region is considered by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. Wine has been produced by traditional landholders in the Douro region for some 2,000 years. Since the 18th century, its main product, port wine, has been world famous for its quality. The region around Pinhão is considered to be the centre of Port wine, with its quintas (farms/estates) that extend along the steep slopes of the river valleys. This long tradition of viticulture is the earth and soul of the area and along the way you’ll find at least two examples able to give you a wine tasting experience, Quinta da foz and Quinta do Bom Fim.
