Centred on the Douro River, the region of Douro can be found upstream from Porto and enjoys sheltered conditions from the coastal influence thanks to Portugal’s mountain ranges.Situated in the North West of Portugal, the valley is split into three regions: Baixo Corgo, Cima Corgo and Douro Superior. Baixo Corgo, in the west of Douro Valley, is the coolest and wettest part of the area; Cima Corgo, to the east of Baixo Corgo has a drier climate and is considered to be the heartland of Port production, and Douro Superior borders Spain and experiences very hot summers and bitterly cold winters.Douro Valley’s principal, native grapes include Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tina Francesca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Cão. Most vineyards use 5 or 6 varieties for each Port and Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz dominate the Douro Valley’s non-fortified red wines.
