The Douro Valley makes some outstanding wines but it is also a spectacularly beautiful landscape. The river meanders through a landscape where wine growing has put its mark almost everywhere. Whichever way you look there are steep hills, incredibly steep hills, with narrow terraces. The terraces are sometimes no more than one row of vines wide.
At the top of almost every hill there is a winery. You just do not want to imagine the super-human effort it must take for the harvest workers to pick the grapes and then to carry them up to the winery.
Fabien Lainé has produced some very beautiful videos on the Douro Valley. You can see them on the BKWine Travel Blog: Beautiful Douro Valley. Delicious Douro wines
Our next wine tour to the Douro Valley will be in October. There are still a few remaining places left. Book now!
