THE DOURO VALLEY IN PORTUGAL
The Douro Valley is the only place in the world that produces the Port wine. By taking a Douro valley tour, you can see for yourself the hard work that producing wine represents. But at the same time the production of Port is a labor of love, because grapes are still generally picked by hand and later on crushed in the traditional way (by foot) because machines are unable to achieve such high-quality results.
The Douro Valley is a Unesco World Heritage site and the oldest demarcated wine region in the world.
The Douro valley is the ideal place to make tourism as this region could easily be called the enchanted valley because of its beauty and magic

About the Quintas from Portugal
The quintas from Douro valley offer different varieties of grapes used to produce the Port wine. Port is a fortified wine and during fermentation brandy is added to it, which makes possible for the wine to preserve some of the sugars from the grapes. This is the distinctive signature sweetness of this unique wine.
