The Douro Valley is the land of Port wine where nature and man’s work blend in a grand landscape full of contrasts.

The granitic foothills of Marão and Montemuro shelter this region from the Atlantic humid winds which is why Mediterranean plants have grown here for centuries—grape vines, olive and almond trees, as well as sweet and tasty fruits, such as oranges, figs, peaches and cherries.
