Just back from three wonderful days in the Douro, celebrating the centenary of Quinta de la Rosa. This was Fiona's first visit to the world's most visually stunning wine region. More very soon on the proceedings of an exciting weekend. For now, I leave you with a picture of Pinhao, viewed from the vineyards above La Rosa (in temperatures in the forties, it was quite some effort getting up there).

"the world's most visually stunning wine region"

I haven't been, but can it really improve upon parts of South Africa?

Cheers, Bill

No it cannot Bill although Jamie does not agree--------he gives the Cape second place though!!!

South Africa is pretty spectacular in places, I agree. But the Douro is something else. Have you guys been?
