Quinta dos Canais

Just back from the Douro, on a trip visiting the Symington family’s properties. It’s always good to be in the Douro, and especially so at harvest time. It hasn’t been the easiest of growing seasons, but good weather over the last few weeks coupled with good weather over the next few (which is vital in this region) should lead to a really good vintage. The first grapes were coming in as I visited and they looked very healthy, and had excellent analytical parameters.
