On the Road with the Grape Guy

Report from - Day 3 in Portugal: The Douro ... February 14, 2012

20 Feb 2012

Valentine's Day, and we're up and at 'em at the crack of dawn ... okay maybe not that early, but it is our longest day ahead as we will be on the go most of the day.  We're heading north east to the Douro, we're Port wines are grown and the new trend is in high quality table wines.  We'll be taken in at Quinta do Castelo for a tasting.  Visit the famous Quinta dos Malvedos (Symington / Graham's) for a tasting and lunch.  And finally to Quinta do Vallado for an interesting and unforgettable tasting with dinner ... as usual with me, it was more about the wine than the food.  Let's take a look at the visual evidence: (check out the pictorial evidence here)
