Vinho Verde

Interesting
The lower valley of the Douro, near to Porto, is the domain of the famous " vinho verde" or green wine. Proper port is made further to the east from Régua to the Spanish border. The river which has been widened with successive dams, runs between the slopes of the surrounding hills. The right bank has more wooded countryside than the left which is cultivated and where small white villages seem to be suspended in the middle of the vines, the olive groves and the fields of maize.
