For those who want to get to know Portugal better, it is a must to visit the region of Alto Douro Vinhateiro, classified by UNESCO in the category of natural landscape and the oldest wine demarcated region of the World!
This region is an area of northeastern Portugal, with more than 26 thousand hectares, is surrounded by mountains that give it particular climatic characteristics. Bathed by the River Douro, it has been producing wine for more than 2,000 years, including the world-famous Port Wine.
