Considered by many as the most beautiful wine-growing region in the world, Douro is undoubtedly a region of "gold", due to its beauty, grandiosity and excellence in the production of wines with unique features that impart a colour, an aroma and taste second to none.
Indeed this region is one of the most beautiful of the wine-growing regions of the world, and I say this after seeing many other regions, which in my opinion, are not equal. It is a historical treasure, the first demarcated region of the world, and those who live there have the privilege of enjoying every day. It is here that the entire Port Wine, a unique style of wine in the world, is produced. However, other wines are also produced here.
In its terraces arise some of the most worldwide appreciated wines as a result of the hard work of man, since its slopes do not allow the mechanization of wine-growing work. It is a heroic viticulture, held in an almost unrealistic scenario, attributing to those that practice it the heroes status; there is even a heroic viticulture certification to value their work.The wine region of Douro is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is characterized by a rugged orography and is divided into three sub-regions: Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior, where white wines, rosé wines, red wines, sparkling wines and Port wines are produced. It is estimated that half of the wine production is allocated to the Port, with the remaining production in white wines, rosé wines, red wines and sparkling wines.
