The Douro Vinhateiro is an area of approximately 26’000 hectares (64’250 acres) in the Douro Valley in Portugal, which has been classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2001.
This region is centered around the Douro River, and has been producing wines for over 2000 years. Its main product, Vinho do Porto (“Port wine”), has been world famous for its quality since the 18th century. This extended tradition of growing grape vines has produced a cultural landscape of unique beauty that reflects its social, economic and technological evolution.
