PORT WINE

Pinhao is located in the Douro Valley, which is where they grow the grapes to make the port wine. It is a beautful valley, through which the Rio Douro runs. There are port vineyards everywhere, where you can stop in for a taste of tour. It's a great way to spend the day. The roads are very trecherous, so you'll need to be extra careful.

VINEYARDS

The valley is so steep, that most of the vineyards are on the sides of the hills. As you drive through, you can see just how steep of an angle these grapes are on. It's unlike any other type of grape grown.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Absolutely beautiful, and unique

    Hi Nico I think your page is in a wrong place. You better move it to Pinhao in Vila Real district. Regards
