The Alto Douro Wine region in located in the northeast of Portugal and covers a region of over 64 247 acres. The region has been producing wine for over 2000 years and is the oldest settled wine region in the world. In 2001 it was considered World Heritage by UNESCO in the category of cultural landscape. Douro’s river vale is made p by steep slopes that allowed the landscape to be shaped into terraces which in turn allowed for the growing of vineyards.

One of the most famous wines in the region is Port wine, which started to be produced in the second half of the 17th century, at which time it began to be exported, mainly to England.

The region is made up of several quiet and pleasant villages, vineyards that follow along the curves of the land, castles built into the defence lines from the time when the land was won back from the moors and by spectacular viewpoints.
