Portugal - Alto Douro Wine Region
Demarcated Port Wine Region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Sent by Rui, a Facebook friend from Portugal.
The Alto Douro Region has been producing wine for some 2,000 years and its landscape has been moulded by human activities. The components of the landscape are representative of the full range of activities association with winemaking - terraces, quintas (wine-producing farm complexes), villages, chapels and roads.
