    THE DOURO RIVER VALLEY

    Culture, Gastronomy & Wines through a land of splendor

    The mythic Douro River crosses the land of old Castile (central Spain) before entering Portugal through its worldwide famous romantic valley and joins the Atlantic Ocean in the extraordinary city of Porto, one of the most charming destinations of Western Europe.

    Surrounded by dramatic landscapes with magical castles and amazing old monasteries, the vineyards situated along that river are among the oldest of Europe. But what makes Iberian Peninsula wine country truly unique is the blending of tradition and innovation, with a permanent creation of extraordinary new red wines going over 95 in Robert Parker’s punctuations. In the actual context of winemaking, the Douro river valley is by itself the old European terroir where enologists allow themselves to be boldly creative!
