Video: Duorom, a new project in Portugal's upper Douro

A short film on the new Douro Superior project of Joao Portugal Ramos, called Duorum. The first wine, the Colheita 2007, has just been released. The current wines are sourced from old vineyards in the Cima Corgo (some 15 of them) and also a 60 hectare rented vineyards in the Douro Superior. This film concentrates on the new 150 hectare estate that has been purchased in the Douro Superior and is now being planted. It's a spectacular project.

I'm pleased to be looking after this propoerty for the UK market. I was at the vineyard a couple of weeks ago with a supermarket buyer, and we made the passage round the precipitous slope in a regular road car (Jose-Maria's BMW). It was raining steadily and the tracks had turned to slippery mud, and we were inches from the edge, so it was hard to concentrate on the vines! Nice to see the place in bright sunshine, a great little video clip.

It's an Audi. How much will the Duorum sell for in the UK, Nick?

Looks amazing Jamie. Particularly like 'This is schist'. Something a bit Spinal Tap about that.
