While I was staying in the Douro last week, I had a chance to see some historical pictures from the first decade of the last century.
I’ve posted them online here. I find the Douro a fascinating region for many reasons – not least, the very real connection with history and tradition. Bringing the wines down from the Douro to Gaia must have been an exciting and dangerous journey.
Now, the river is dammed. The wine travels by road.
